Name Puzzle
Write each child’s name on a 10” sentence strip. Cut between the letters in the name and put them in an envelope. Write the child’s name on the front of the envelope. The children empty the envelope and put the letters together like a puzzle to spell the name.

Unifix Cubes
Place dot stickers on Unifix cubes.  Write the first letter in each child’s name on one color and the remaining letters on another color as shown.  Store these in a pencil box.  Children can take the letters apart and then put them back together to spell their friends’ names

Flap Book
Turn a brown paper lunch bag horizontally.  Fold over the end as shown. Open the flap and print the child’s name so that only the first letter will show when you fold over the flap. Glue the child’s picture under the flap.
Sneak a Peek
Cut off the left edge of an envelope. Write one child’s name on a 12” sentence strip and glue his picture on the right end as shown in the illustration. Place the sentence strips inside the envelope.  Children pull out one letter at a time as they predict whose 
                                                      name it will be.
Rub Overs
Write children’s names with school glue.  Dry.  Children place a piece of paper on top of the name and rub with the side of a crayon.

Push Pin
Write children’s names on sentence strips.  Children place a sheet of construction paper on top of a carpet square or mouse pad.  Next, place their name on top and punch around the letters with a jumbo push pin.  When they hold the construction paper up to the light they will see their name.

Use baseball card holders to make matching games with children’s names and photos.
