I like to begin the year focusing on our names. It is a word that all of the children can read and most can write. They can begin the year feeling like they are confident readers and writers! Plus, it is a nice way to get to know one another.
I usually use songs or poems to learn names and to examine the letters in our names. I made a small packet of 3 songs that I use. They are to the tunes of some familiar songs. I made two copies of each song. The second copy has a blank line where the name should be in case you would like to have the children write names. You could also print the song sheet into a poster size, laminate it, and use a wipe-off marker to fill in the names. Click the image below to grab this fun freebie!
