Name Stories

One of my favorite projects of the whole first grade year is the "name story." It's so simple...ask the kids to go home and ask their family about the story of their name. Then they record it in their own first grade writing (which makes it extra adorable!) on a lined page. This year I found a really cute way to display them in the classroom, too.

I pasted each child's name story on a piece of construction paper, stapled 2 together on one edge, then stapled it to the bulletin board like the open pages of a book. I printed a large 8 x 10 picture of each kid on a color copier, cut it out, and placed it behind. It's made a super fun and attractive 3-D display of some very special stories!
