This name glyph is a fun, Back-to-School activity that you could do at any time during the first week of school. You’ll need to have your student’s names printed out in some type of block or bubble letters that they can fill in with the various patterns and colors. Here are links to some free fonts that you can download:
If your student has more than seven letters in his or her first name, then have them repeat the pattern starting at the first letter (ie. For letter 8, use the letter 1 pattern. For letter 9, use the letter 2 pattern, etc.)
I like to back them with colored cardstock or construction paper, laminate, and place them above or below student work that I have displayed in the classroom or hallway.
