My Name Is #2


Try one or more of these two activities to help students get to know one another early in the school year.

Write each child's name on an index card. Cut the card into 3 to 6 puzzle type pieces and invite children to put their puzzles together. If children master the puzzle quickly, try cutting it into more pieces. Note: Use a different color for each child's name, so children don't mix their puzzle pieces with another child's.

Read I Like Me! by Nancy Carlson (Penguin). Then invite each child to stand up, say his or her name, and tell one thing he or she likes about him or herself.
