I always enjoy seeing the wide variety of Wordless Wednesday pictures at the linky party hosted by Miss DeCarbo of Second Grade Sugar & Spice.
This week I’d like to share the “How many letters are in your name?” graph my Young 5’s class did as part of our All About Me activities. I wrote the letters of each student’s name on Post-it notes and had the children place their letters on the graph paper. We then counted how many letters each chld had in their name as well as who had the least letters and the most letters. Of course, any name graphing activity must include a reading of the classic book Chrysanthemum by Kevin Henkes. My class listened intently to this book and were amazed anyone could have thirteen letters in their name!
What is a favorite name activity you do with your class?
