OUR WINNING NAMES


I sent home each child's outlined name with instructions for the families to decorate the names with household items. Each child won a ribbon for their name. The best part is as I handed out the ribbons I would say "Way to go - you're a winner winner chicken dinner." The kids laughed and kept repeating they weren't chickens. Now that all the names are in and hung up they are asking to do them again. I think they want to hear they are "chicken dinners" again.

RAINBOW WRITING

SORTING LETTERS IN MY NAME


Sorting letters: These letters are in my name - these letters are not.


After reading Chrysanthemum we cut apart our names then glued them on a sentence strip. We counted the letters in our name and graphed them.

WHO IS HERE TODAY?


Use a pocket chart to match our pictures to our names as we begin to learn to recognize our friends names too.

PEEK A BOO WHO ARE YOU BOOK


This is absolutely my classes' favorite book all year long. It does take some time to prepare but once you prepare the peek a boo pages they are done and can be reused from year to year. I have had mine now for 10 years.


This is the peek a boo page which you need to make for every child in your room.

Materials: Construction paper cut in half - I used brown. Red construction paper which will be used to glue the child's picture on. Multicultural die cut hand prints. A picture of each child in your class.

To make book:
Glue about one third of the bottom of the hands to the brown construction paper. Make sure and glue the hands with the thumbs out which is how it looks when someone plays peek a boo. Write the words "Peek a boo. Who are you?" at bottom of the brown construction paper.

Glue a picture of each child on a full size red construction paper. Write on it, "I am _________(child's name)! That's who!"

After you make a peek a boo page and a picture page for each child put your book together

PAINT STICK NAME


Paint stick programmed with each child's name. Child uses pre-programmed clothespins to match letters. Can be used for sight words also.

OUR ALPHABET NAME BOOK


I used large manuscript tablet and programmed each page with one letter from the alphabet. I started by asking who has a name that starts with "A"? and then wrote all those names on the A page. After going thru the alphabet once for first letters of names we then revisited each letter asking now who has an "a" in their name? We did a page or two a day. The kids had a great time reading this book all year long.

NAME BAGGIE


Each child has a baggie that has his/her name written in marker on outside of the bag. Inside are individual bottle caps or poker chips (Dollar Tree sells 100 white one for $1) preprogrammed with each letter of his/her name.

A MY NAME IS ALICE


Saw this idea on Pinterest to go with the book A My Name is Alice and this is my class' results . The children cut and drew faces on their pictures and then dictated what they liked that started with the first letter of their name (OK lotsa help was needed here). But I think they turned out really cute.
