Name Practice Letter Hunt - a fun game to practice name recognition and spelling, I know by learning with Caden, recognition of name, age, word needs constant practice so this sounds pretty good to me for a fun way to do it.
Math wall---"How Tall am I?" Flower Sprouts with the kids' names on the flowers. This would be great as a beginning and end of the year activity! I can just imagine how much the kids would giggle over their comparisons :-)
The All About Me Gazette for the first day of school. We do use this in grade. then at the end of the year the art teacher has them create a TIME magazine self portrait. Combine the two for a great foyer display to celebrate moving on to grade!
First weeks of school activities- some great ideas. How many letters in my name? Coming up with a characteristic about themselves with the same sound as the first sound in their name. Lee's Kindergarten: All About Me!
