Kevin Henke’ story “Chrysanthemum”
is perfect for introducing name activities
. It’s one of my favorite back to school
His story was the inspiration for this quick, easy and fun “print & go”
Simply choose which name slider you want your kiddos to make. There are 6 options
I like my students to get some practice in making choices, so I run all of them off.
I’ve included black and white patterns
for kiddos to color, as well as templates in color
, so that you can quickly and easily make examples
Mounting them on construction paper gives a splash of color and makes them sturdier.
Run off the boxed “slider strips”, as well as the blank strips and trim.
Children color Chrysanthemum
, then write their name on the “slider” strip, by writing a letter in each box.
If you have PK
kiddos who don’t know how to write their name, you can have slider strips already written for them, or provide a name card
for them to copy.
I’ve included 6 matching name cards
if you’d like to use these.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you a super-fun school year.
