At the beginning of every school year teachers are gearing up to learn the names of their new students. Even before the kids walk in the door, most teachers have name cards in place and display boards with student names waiting for art work to be added.
Here are a couple of fun name activities you can do with your kids in the first week of school.
In Name Scoot, students write their name and answer two questions about themselves. Then they "scoot" around the room and make words with the letters in the person's name. It's fun to see who gets the most words written with their name.
For this activity students take the page home and ask their parents about the history of their name. Lots of fun to share the information when they bring them back to school.
I hope your school year gets off to a wonderful start!
