Is it back to school time for you? Well… are you (at least) thinking about back to school? These fun crafts and interactive pocket chart activities are perfect to practice names and have fun doing it! They also make ADORABLE bulletin boards for the first few weeks of school!
Here are a few math and literacy activities for you and your class!
Chicka Chicka Boom Boom
I love this book and it was always one of my back to school read alouds. After reading the story, students create this super cute craft.
A, My Name is Alice
Another great read aloud! This book is full of alliterations. After reading, engage in a pocket chart activity with your class. Your students will love seeing their name in the pocket chart!
Create a self-portrait as a fun added craft!
Instead of the sentence, you could add rainbow names.
The Wheels on the Bus
A cute craft to focus on the beginning sound of your students’ names. They draw pictures of their new friends to ride their bus. Kids love it!
Add some rainbow names and you have a brightly-colored bulletin board display!
Bippity Boppity Bumblebee
Practice the number of syllables in your students’ names with this interactive pocket chart. This could be a fun morning meeting song/activity.
Your students can even practice using math manipulatives with these name activities.
These fun math and literacy name activities can be found in my Names unit:
