Name Map-This is a great getting to know you activity. The teacher creates one and shares it with the class. The teacher then allows the students to create their own "name map". The middle symbol represents them and then they have other symbols branching off of the center symbol that represent who they are and their interests. It also goes well after reading Chrysanthemum.
My Name in Fractions: what fraction of the letters in your name are consonants? What fraction are vowels? could also color the letters different- 1/4 are red, 2/4 blue, etc. Then reduce fractions as well.
