Name graph. Math and Literacy combined activity. As children grow developmentally can do same activity with last names. Great for learning about graphing! You could definitely adapt for each grade level depending upon the skill being used (i.e. you could have 4th or 5th graders create line plots, pie charts, etc.)
"Chrysanthemum" Back to School Activities. This is a good activity for students to do in the beginning of the year because they get to start learning counting and learn each others names. I remember reading this book when I was little!
