This Name Tag craftivity is a great way to get to know your students during the first week of school, as well as have a lasting, unique nameplate for the rest of the year.
Items to Gather:
- plain white paper
Step 1: Cut a piece of plain white paper to 3 inches by 8.5 inches.
Step 2: Pass out one white paper strip to each student. They also will need the glue, scissors, and one magazine.
Step 3: Instruct students to cut out words from the magazine(s) that represent themselves or things that they like. The students should ONLY cut out words.
Step 4: Arrange the words collage style on the strip of paper.
Step 5: When the strips are complete, place a small piece of paper with the name of the student in the center of the strip (over top of the words they cut out).
Step 6: Laminate and cut out. Then place on the student's box or desk.
I like to use the hard lamination. This ensures that the name tags last all year. These do take a while to complete. I usually set aside about an hour for two days to get these done. I really like the students to be reflective about these and giving them time allows for that.
