PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Name Mandala Writing and Art Project is a fun way to not only build community, but also assess your students as writers and integrate art into your back-to-school activities!

The project starts with a game called “Name Rhythms”. Students will get to share their names, personalities, and develop a sense of trust with you and their classmates.

Then, continuing with the name theme, students interview family members and write a story about their name. This story can be used as a beginning of the year writing assessment to gauge your students’ writing skills.

Last, but not least, students create a beautiful name mandala.

When both the writing and art projects are done, they can be mounted and displayed for Open House or Back to School Night.

Using this product helps takes care of three big beginning of the year classroom needs: building community, assessing writing, back to school art display!
