Have children use their names for different art projects. Use these personal
creations to decorate bulletin boards, walls, cubbies, and your classroom.
Pennants: Give children paper cut in the
shape of pennants to decorate with their names and pictures of things they
like cut from magazines.
Banners: Have children decorate banners with
their names, pictures of their families, things that are special about them,
etc. (This would be a fun project for children to do at home with their
Nameplate: Take construction paper and fold
into fourths as shown. Have children write their name and decorate on three
sections. Staple the fourth section under to make a triangular nameplate.
Acrostic: Ask children to write their first
name vertically down the side of a sheet of paper. Challenge them to think
of a word for each letter that describes them.
Name Chain: Cut construction paper into
9" x 2" strips. Give one to each child to decorate with his or
her name and pictures and designs. Staple the strips together to make a
"friendship chain" that can be hung in your classroom. Discuss how
the members in your classroom need to take care of each other and work together
to be strong like a chain. If one person doesn't cooperate, then it hurts
the rest of the chain.
Class Quilt: Give each child an 8" square
on which to draw their face and write their name. (Provide a mirror so the
children can look at their face as they draw.) Glue the squares to a larger
sheet of bulletin board paper and glue yarn bows in between the squares
to resemble a quilt.
Hint! Provide the children with body color
markers and crayons.
