This project is a great way to introduce each student to each other in the beginning of the school year. You can even take the finished products and decorate them around your home or classroom to create your own homemade "garden" of students.
Each student would write their name inside the box of the flower pot and then count the letters in their name. After discovering the number of letters in their name, the student will write the number on the line. For example, "My name has 5 letters".
Using the petals provided, the student will write the letters in their name, one letter per petal. For example, for my name Staci, I would use 5 petals for the 5 letters in my name.
Cut and glue the petals to the circle "My name is" to create the flower.
