This name tag glyph activity will be your first-day-of-school life saver! I know it has been for me these past two years. While your new group of students read through the directions and set right to work creating their personalized name tags, you are able to take attendance, greet late students, get everyone situated, supplies gathered, etc.! See?! Lifesaver. Once your students are done (and even during) creating them, you will notice they are already setting to work sharing them before you ask them to or remind them of that step. You can use them right away or later on in the day/week for some community or team building as well.

post for a quick view into how I used it the last 2 years in my own classroom.
