Say My Name! is a coloring and poster board collage activity (see images for example).
Say My Name is an activity designed to help clients love and embrace their names by creating a poster board display! Clients can color in the individual letters that make up their name. In this download, you will find 26 letters (uppercase and lowercase) each with a unique design. These letters can be printed as needed.
Also included are name-related writing prompts such as “I like to be called..” and “My name means…”, as well as other design elements that can be used for decorative purposes. Clients can use a poster board to display their names and decorate their board as they please. Clients could also use cut-out words or images taken from magazines.
Say My Name can be used with clients with “uncommon” names across many cultural backgrounds or with clients that have experienced bullying, teasing, or discrimination due to their name. The activity is designed to help kids learn to appreciate and embrace their name as a part of their identity.
