This idea,was born out of the need for a name day -and even a birthday- gift for my students, with a positive message, to show how much I love them and believe in them!
Since the first time I tried this idea, I have loved doing it year after year. It is wonderful to see my students’ reactions!
To make the craft, we need a post- it note, for writing an adjective for each letter of the student’s name and a pen or pencil .
You may also need to have a positive personality adjective list printed, in advance.
Here’s one such list you can use.
If your students wish , they can write their own acrostic and make the craft themselves! I prefer to make it for them and choose the adjectives which I believe are best for them!
They are thrilled to know how much their teacher values their talents and respects their personality! It is a great self-esteem booster idea! Perfect for any age!
The children LOVE to see their acrostic name, hanging on the pen ! This idea, gets ALL KINDS of compliments and attention from all students and colleagues too, which is always fun to receive !
Highly recommended! Why don’t you give it a try, too?
