Name Mosaics

One of my favorite things to do at the beginning of the year is have my students create name mosaics!  They are given small pieces of colored construction paper.  They tear them into teeny tiny pieces, and then glue them to the letters of their name. They practice fine motor skills and practice the letters in their name.

We practice the colors of the rainbow by placing them in order of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple.

Then, as a class we practice reading each child's name, finding the first letter of their name, we say it a few times, and then we post it on our word wall.  We use our word wall to help us spell and find words we know!

We will add sight words to our word wall soon.  These are our first words up in our room, and the kids love it!
