These crests are a great “Getting to Know You” activity for the beginning of the year. They also make an attractive bulletin board for “Back to School” nights and Open Houses. The crests can be a homework assignment and/or put together into a class book. Students should add their first or last name on the crests, depending on your directions. They can write or draw their favorite things in the sections. They can also make their own lines on the blank crests for the number of sections they choose. They can write words, write sentences or add and color pictures in the sections.
