Cursive Name Creatures

While perusing Becca's blog I landed on this great project.
 I started teaching a new group of students that I had never met before. What a great way to really get to know the names of your new students. Being in the third grade, these students were excited to write in cursive.

Very fun!

Everyone works at a different pace so I thought this would be a great project to 'start' with and easy to work on when done with other future projects.

They love the googly eyes.


  1. These turned out great! I love the googly eyes idea!

  2. I have to say, I love the googly eyes too!When I do this project I call it Name Aliens. I like doing this project in conjunction with something I call the 40 dot monster. I have the kids make 40 dots on their paper at random and then connect the dots. When they are done I ask them to find the monster they have just created and add further details to it. The combo project was especially cool to do a couple of years ago when the movie Monsters vs. Aliens came out.
