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
  • magazines
  • glue
  • scissors
  • laminator

Instructions:


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.

Other Tips/Suggestions:

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.
