Looking for a great stress-buster, bell-ringer, brain-break, warmer, filler, or fast-finisher activity?

A creative twist on the name game. Students draw the letters in their name, then fill the letters in with words that start with that word.

There are a lot of ways to use this activity in the classroom:

  • Build vocabulary by asking how many words they can think of that begin with the letters in their name.
  • Do a Scattergories/Tutti Frutti variation where you give students categories and they think of a word in that category that begins with each letter of their name.
  • Have them choose words that describe their personality, relate to their hobbies, or otherwise have some significance (Great Getting-to-Know-You Activity!)
  • Decorate the names and turn them into name tents or hang them on the wall.


Each of these original worksheets from the 60 Positive Activities for Kids activities are extremely flexible and adaptable to fit your classroom! Students can respond in writing, in discussion, or by drawing. Younger learners (or lower-level ESL/EFL students) might start with a drawing, then label it. After that, they can tell their partner about their answer, before doing a short writing of a sentence or two. Older or more advanced students might start with drawings and notes, and move straight to a paragraph, which they can then read or present to the class!

They’re easy to fit into a writing class, English class, creative play time, or even an after-school program, preschool, nursery school, kindergarten, or homeschooling situation.

Also available as a set of PowerPoints, easy to add to classroom or distance learning slide shows or as a paperback book, great for regular journaling!
