We continued to work VERY hard on writing our names by ourselves. I had quite a few students who did not know how to write their name. I am one proud teacher though! A handful of those students who did not know how to write their name were able to write their names by themselves this week! We celebrated their success with lots of happy dances! We did lots of activities this week to help with our names:
1. We read the story ‘Chrysanthemum’ which went perfect for a name activity!
Here is what we did:
I typed the students names, but mixed up the letters. They had to cut out each letter and then unscramble them to spell their name correctly. Then they glued the letters onto construction paper and got to rainbow write the letters in their name.
To tie in some math with this activity since we have been doing lots of counting this week, I had them count how many letters were in their name and they wrote that number in the blank.
