This activity called Name Reflection. The materials you will need are markers, colored paper, and scissors. I allowed 15 minutes for this activity on the third day of school.
Step One: Have students fold a piece of colored paper hamburger style
Step Two: Have students write their name IN CURSIVE along the bottom folded edge.(Warning: many students today do not know how to write in cursive. You will either have to do it for them or get them to help each other with this step)
Step Three: Cut along the curves of the cursive writing. Be careful not to cut the bottom folded edge.
Step 4: Unfold and decorate!
Step 5: Be Prepared to be amazed at the creativity of your students!
