A necessity for kindergarten - STEM skills and maker space are more successful if students know how to use these everyday tools. Your upper grade coworkers will thank you!

Other name crafts are simply a sheet of letters for you to sort through and distribute to your students. With this time-saving craft, you just need to input your student names and letters and you will auto-generate a class set of coconut trees with the student names printed on the trunks and set of individual letters for names of each child. A fun and engaging craft that is quick and easy for you, saving your valuable time during the hectic first weeks of school.

The coconut tree craft is the perfect cutting project: students make their own coconut tree, and decorate it with the letters in their name (all included). Looks great on an open house bulletin board entitled "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom! Look Who's in our Classroom!"

What is editable?

See the preview pages for a clearer look. The names and letters in the blue boxes are editable.

Can I change the clipart?

No, clipart, the titles and the text already on the worksheets cannot be changed.

I have a student whose name contains more than nine letters. Help!

This get around will help! On the form field where you enter letter names, go to a student's name who has less than nine letters, and add the extra letters you need. Don't forget which student you added the letters to! Then, when you print the pages, simply cut the extra letter tiles out and give them to the student who needs them.
