Looking for a great stress-buster, bell-ringer, brain-break, warmer, filler, or fast-finisher activity?
A simple printable worksheet that has students list some nicknames. These could be nicknames their friends or family have given them, variations on their name, or a nickname they’ve given themselves. It might even be a name they wish they had.
By itself, the worksheet is a quick warmer or filler that can be done as a fast pair-share. But since many nicknames have a story attached, the activity can be extended as students share the meaning of their nickname and how they got it. They can do this in a discussion or as a piece of expository or narrative writing.
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.
