STUDENT NAME SCULPTURES~ Students draw the letters of their name on stiff paper such as Bristol board or card stock. Next, they decorate each letter with different types of lines/colors, and then cut out the letters. It takes problem solving skills to arrange the letters into a sculpture. Very cool!
Name Art: what a fun way for kids to practice cutting, gluing, and tracing their names. Also could use different shaped pieces of paper to glue on to make names. Fun way for the kids to practice their names or words they have trouble spelling.
