Grammatical Name Art

Summer is awesome!  So much more time for reading, messing around on iPads, cuddling the dog, and blogging.  This activity can be used as a fun back to school get to know you game and bulletin board.  It is also a fun activity for end of the year or any time you need to do a parts of speech review.

Step 1: Write your name in bubble letters -- in pencil of course!
Step 2: Fill the first letter with nouns that relate to you.  These can be common or proper nouns.  Just make sure you capitalize the proper nouns!


Step 3: Fill the second letter with verbs that relate to you.  Action or linking verbs both work.  If you are writing a phrase like "make cookies" make sure you underline the verb.


Step 4: Fill the third letter with adjectives that describe you.  I guess blue and red don't really describe me, but they're colors I like.


For the remaining letters students can choose to write more nouns, verbs, or adjectives.  I did a letter full of favorites and a letter full of more nouns (mainly restaurants).  You can also do numbers that relate to the students.



That's grammatical name art.  Pretty easy!

  10. I love this idea! It also seems like it would make a great get-acquainted activity for the beginning of the school year. The final products would make an attractive and engaging hall display. Hope you don't mind that I pinned it to my main Pinterest board (http://pinterest.com/1grateful1/teaching-having-fun-w-kids/)? I also try to share the best pins on my Facebook page and blog. Thanks for sharing this fun, easy, and versatile idea!
