All about me

All about me


All About Me is full of fun activities using Makaton symbols and signs to encourage children to listen, understand and express themselves.

It has been designed for use as part of The Communication Trust's No Pens Day Wednesday event.

Can you help us produce more free resources to support more people to connect to the world around them with Makaton? Your kind and generous support helps us to give people a voice... makaton.org/donate

A lovely resource, thank you x
This resource is really helpful

The activities in All About Me are designed to be used with children of a range of abilities and ages and can easily be adapted.

The activities will:

  • enable children to take part in speaking and listening activities using signs and symbols;
  • create fun opportunities to practise signs and symbols together;
  • reinforce understanding and expression;
  • provide a social situation when signs can be used with meaning;
  • help to generalise the practical use of signs and symbols in many situations;
  • help to develop many language skills, such as concentrating, listening, taking turns, remembering, and pretending to be someone else for a short time;
  • make communicating and using signs and symbols an enjoyable experience.

All About Me also includes hints and tips about using Makaton and evidencing outcomes.
