Invite students to respond to 30 prompts and questions in a personal and imaginative way, using doodles, words, ‘graffiti style’ lettering and illustrations.

T shirt template 1: Art Activity

There are 15 sections to illustrate responses to prompts, including:

Self portrait, name, age, grade, favorite color, fruit, vegetable, sport, film, song…

T shirt template 2: Writing Activity

There are 15 questions / prompts to respond to in written format, including:

My top 3 goals this year, something I like at school, something I find challenging,

if I were a superhero, I can make the world better by, I feel happy when, I feel sad when, I aim to, I wonder if…..

The T-Shirt templates are approximately 22 x18 cm / 8 x 7 in. They can be printed on US Letter or A4 paper sizes.

Some users complained that the T-Shirt templates are too small. Therefore, I created additional templates to fill the US Letter size.

These T Shirts measure approximately 25 x 20cm / 10 x 8 inches

Please note, the 2 activities have been designed to complete on separate pieces of paper, they are not formatted to be printed back to back on one sheet of paper.

The finished T-shirts look great displayed on the bulletinboard or tied on a string to form a garland. The design inspiration comes from Piet Mondrian’s abstract work. A poster and garland are included in the pack to brighten the classroom.

Photographs of completed and partially completed examples included in the packet, use a black ball point pen and colored markers to create a modern, illustrative style to appeal to slightly older children, grade 4+

The pack also contains activities for early finishers, including doodle pages and bookmarks to make.

Templates for UK/Aus/Can with ‘colour” and ‘favourite’ spellings are included in this packet.

The creativity and thought that went into this product is great, but the t-shirt prints so small it is almost a bookmark. Maybe I should have read the description more carefully, but it wasn’t what I wanted or expected. It would make a great garland, even though it is small. However, if you’re looking for a BTS display this is not the right one. I was disappointed.

This was a fun way to have my students introduce themselves on their first day at school. I did station work, and this was one of my stations. Amazing and rare resource!
