I have 100 followers on TPT! To celebrate I made a new FREEBIE for you Editable Name Cards: Dot It, Collage It, Puzzle It, Sticker It, Paint It, Rainbow Write!
Every student in my class is working on their name. I have students working on learning their first name in uppercase, first name in lowercase, last name in uppercase, and/or their last name in lowercase. Many students at many different levels. I can make the name card specific to the level each child is at. This way all the students can do the same activity but at their own individual level. Here are some of the ways I have used them in my class.
Sticker Collage Your Name! This is their favorite way by far! It is also GREAT fine motor work.
I made a fun bulletin board with the Sticker Name Collages! It shows parents that I am supporting their child at their own level too!
Dot Your Name! Students used dot markers and dotted their name.
I had students who were working on their name in lowercase and their name in uppercase at the same table. Great conversations about uppercase and lowercase letters were happening! Love that!
Make a Name Puzzle!
Students colored their name cards and I cut the letters apart.
Students had a bast putting their name puzzles together!
I made name puzzles for some of my students on colored paper. Just copy/print the name card on 2 different colored pieces of paper. Cut one up into pieces and leave the other whole for the student to use a model. It is really helping my students write their name in order. They do it each morning after they sign in.
Button Collage Your Name! One morning during table time, students could pick from a variety of materials and make a name collage. This little man made his name using buttons!
Rainbow Write Your Name! I used the hollow letters and students rainbow wrote their names using each color. It makes each letter a rainbow!
Q Tip Paint Your Name! Students used q-tips for paint brushes and painted their name.
Learn Your Sight Words! I am also using the cards to help students learn their sight words! A few of my pre-k friends are working on the sight word am.
Here are a few more ideas I have but haven’t had time to implement yet. Laminate and…
- use as playdoh mats!
- students trace their names with dry erase markers
- add a texture like glue. Students can finger trace their name and feel the texture as they trace.
- use wiki sticks
- make name with snack food
Thanks again to everyone! It would be great if you would leave some feedback too.
