Locker Nametags

This poem was above our lockers and there were star shaped nametags on each locker.

Who Stole the Cookies from the Cookie Jar

 

Who Stole the Cookies from the Cookie Jar is a great way to learn each other’s names. I place name cards in the blank space so each child gets a turn and learns to recognize his/her own name.

Name Recognition Game

This is a name recognition activity. The students’ names are written on paper plates. At the beginning you “sail” one paper plate to the floor while you sing this song to the tune of If You’re Happy and You Know It:

If your name is on the plate, pick it up.
If your name is on the plate, pick it up.
If your name is on the plate, then you’re really doing great!
If your name is on the plate, pick it up.

Each day I sail a few more plates at a time until they are all on the floor by the end of the week and each child must find his/her own name.

Name Bottles

Each of these bottles contains the letters of our names and some small confetti. The bottles are called Baby Soda Bottles and can be purchased from Steve Spangler Science.

Name Necklace

The students make a name necklace the first week by putting the letters of their first name in order. I wish beads with lower-case letters were available for this.
