Name Posters- First Day of School Art

Student Name Posters in Bubbly Letters
For years, I've done Rainbow Names with students on the first day of school. It's a simple art activity that allows me to discuss my expectations for using school supplies. It also keeps students busy for a chunk of time. The first week of school is crazy, and there are lots of random things that need to be attended to. Having a few projects for students to work on while the teacher gets situated is key. I was surfing Pinterest yesterday, and I stumbled upon these adorable name posters from Middle School Frolics (formerly 4th Grade Frolics).

Similar to the Rainbow Names idea, students get a chance to use their brand new school supplies and the teacher can review supply expectations with students. These name posters are so easy to prep, and you can have a class set printed out in no time! I created a step-by-step tutorial for anyone who wants to make a set for their own classroom. The font that Tara from Middle School Frolics suggested in her original post was GROBOLD, and I love it!

Primary Teachers- This font uses the "fancy a," so if you want a traditional "a," you may want to try a different chunky font, such as KG What the Teacher Wants. Thanks, Tara, for sharing this darling idea! If you have any questions, please feel free to leave a comment or e-mail me at
