Names Names Names

I love the beginning weeks of school.  We spend a lot of time talking about our names and creating a variety of Class Made Books.  We recently read The Handmade Alphabet.  With this book I love to use the Fonts 4 Teachers program that allows you to do each child's name in sign language.  We then draw a self-portrait under our sign language name.  The children love this. 

We also love to read Chrysanthemum and the numerous activities associated with that book.  You have seen many of them all over the internet and blogs.  Graphing our names, comparing our names, etc, etc, etc.
