Wordless Wednesday - Name Graph

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?

  1. What a fun chart! I teach grade 4. When I do area and perimeter, I have them draw their names as block letters on graph paper. They have to find the area and perimeter of each letter.

  2. Lovely to meet you through the linky. It is always interesting to find out what a name means and why they have that name - we sometimes do this as part of our social studies lessons and it has sometimes led to children finding out about their family history after asking questions at home :)

  3. I teach HS, so learning their names...which I am proud to say I have done without a seating chart by week 2!

  4. We decorated our names this year. I printed them in bubble letters and the kids loved it! Pictures coming on my blog soon (might have forgot to take them today!)
