What's your name?
Puddin and tane.
Ask me again
And I'll tell you the same.
Do you remember that rhyme? Our name is important to us at all ages. Names
are also a perfect springboard for creating a classroom community and integrating
reading skills. Here are some songs, chants, books, and activities to help
children build friendships and feel special the whole year through!
Cut 3" circles (cookies) out of poster board.
Write each child's name on the "cookie."
Place the cookies in an empty cookie box or bag.
Choose one name at a time and use it in the chant below:
Who ate the cookie in the cookie jar?
Child's name ate the cookie in the cookie jar.
Who me? (First child responds.)
Yes you. (Class chants.)
Couldn't be? (First child.)
Then who? (Class chants.)
Second child's name ate the cookie
in the cookie jar. (Choose a second child's name)
Hint! Put the child's photo on one side of the cookie and the name on
the other side. Give children a spatula and let them play a game where they
try to read each other's names, and then flip the cookie over to see if
they are correct.
Give each child a cookie to eat for snack. Take a picture of them eating
their cookies, and then make a book with their
pictures and the above chant.
