Grade Level – 7-8
There are a great deal of students in our school and each year it seems harder to learn their names. In order for us all to learn names and something about ourselves, I have come up with this “Name Game”.
Supplies needed: Plenty of dictionaries, paper and pencils
Each student must find a new, creative and positive adjective to describe themselves. It must begin with the first letter of their first name. The object is to come up with the most outlandish adjective possible. Then we start at the front of the first row. They must say their adjective, then name. If needed, they will give definition of adjective or write it on the board. The next student gives their adjective/name and the person’s in front of them. This continues throughout the class. We always have a blast, learn some great new and colorful adjectives, and get needed dictionary use practice. The kids don’t even realize they are learning something new and useful!
