I love our "All About Me" unit for several reasons. The first reason is that we just do some fun things in this unit. However, since this is one of the first units of the school year, all of this work is a baseline for home much they will develop during the rest of the year.

We actually do these both at the beginning of the year and then at the end of the year, and display them side-by-side in their end-of-the-year memory books. It's amazing how much difference we see in the span of just a few months.
So in essence, our "All About Me" theme is learning "All About the Little People" just where they are today. They're young, they're learning, but they're growing and changing and developing everyday.
I can only imagine how they will be in a few months...
