I’m always looking for more quick, easy and fun ways for my kiddos to practice recognizing & writing their names, so I designed this Chrysanthemum-themed name craftivity.
My kiddos absolutely love Kevin Henkes’ story “Chrysanthemum”, so this provides a fun activity for children to transition to after you read the book.
The “color, cut & glue” name frame craft, provides wonderful fine motor practice, plus assists children in learning how to spell their name as they begin to recognize those letters.
Using students’ names is an extremely effective way for children to learn letters of the alphabet. Names are personal so interest is keen; children are eager to learn.
This name puzzle is a focused word work craftivity that helps students see their name as a word, as well as individual letters in that word.
Children glue the letters of their name on the individual squares in the correct sequence. Afterwards, have them point to each letter and spell their name.
Completed projects make a sweet back to school bulletin board too.
Besides the name craft, the packet also includes:
* Separate upper & lowercase letter cards, as well as a set of cards with both the upper and lowercase letter on one card.
Use them for Memory Match and “I Have; Who Has?” games.
I’ve also included a 4-page tip list of other ideas for the cards, including the “Kaboom!” game.
* A variety of letter worksheets plus…
* Some simple letter games.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your kiddos enjoy practicing their names with the sweet little mouse Chrysanthemum. Wishing you a joy-filled time.
