Every year I have made name cards with/for the children, and I think it is much more effective if I do them with them. These are just cardstock rectangles glued back-to-back to make them more sturdy, with the child’s photo off to one side and their name in capital letters. On the back side, their name is written ‘the Kindergarten way’. (I’ve found that it creates much more excitement about letters when we learn them first in all capitals. That way when we’re looking at NOAH, Olivia says, “Hey, that’s my letter, too!”) I laminate them with clear contact paper so I’m doing it with the children, and as we assemble it, they are just overjoyed to hold it and show it to their friends. We use them throughout the year to write our own names or our friends’.
