This worked well as a daily sign-in procedure. Children found their name puzzle and spelled their name at the beginning of each day. They loved it!
Stained Glass Names: this is a simple project, and a great introduction to the concept of positive and negative space for younger kids. Any project using their names is typically a guaranteed hit!! It is also a good way to really explore the shape of the letters.
Name Chart - This is probably one of the most frequently used items in my classroom. I make it using the Lakeshore Photo Nameplates. I cut off the lines on the bottom. I mount the photos on large tagboard. I laminate the board and the names. The names on the lines are then attached with velcro dots. The kids use it all of the time when they want to write their friend.
