1-2-3 Come Do Some Superhero Activities With Me
Since superheroes are super popular with my students, I decided to design this fun-filled packet entitled: “Superheroes Wear Masks & So Do We!”
Why wear a mask? Because we are germ fighters! We mask up, social distance & wash our hands.
Hopefully, being a germ-fighting superhero will lesson the anxiety of this crazy time in history.
I've included a pair of superhero posters you can use to introduce your lesson, then later include on your bulletin board.
There are all sorts of “What is your ____ name?” activities on the Internet, such as “What Is Your Pirate Name?”; so I thought it would be fun to create my own Superhero one.
Since my kiddos are working on identifying letters, plus recognizing & writing their names, this is especially worthwhile, and a lot of fun for them.
Unlike the ones on the web, I have more than one option for each letter.
I tried to be alliterative as well, so with just a few exceptions, I've used words that begin with those letters as well.
The “What’s Your Superhero Name?” activity has black & white name cards for students to color, then write their name on. I've also included a pair in color, so that teachers can quickly & easily make an example to share.
These name cards come lined & unlined with 3 boy & 3 girl superhero options for children to choose from.
Completed projects look cute on a door. Use the "What's Your Superhero Name?" poster for the center of your display.
How does it work?
Using poster #1, students find their initial for their name, then pick one of the adjectives that they like.
Using poster #2 they find their name initial, and choose one of the nouns.
For example, ella reeland chose Blazing Falcon, and saac aylor chose Invisible Tornado for their superhero names.
As you can see in the photograph, I've included a variety of onomatopoetic "call outs", which I sprinkled around my posters. This became part of my wall display.
Other things included in the packet:
*** 4 girl & 4 boy “Superheroes wear masks and so do I” (trace & color) worksheets,
*** A girl & boy “I’m a germ fighter” worksheet, which comes in a 2-on-a-page size.
For added pizzazz, take a photo of each student, cut them into circles, and have them glue them to the circle on their pattern. On my masked-samples, I list the germ fighting rules.
As you can see by my other samples, you can also use these for students to write their superhero names on.
There's also a full-page option, with & without lines, plus a traceable option too.
*** The photographs also show the “starburst” name tags, which come in large & small sizes, as well as black & white, plus colorful options.
All of the activites are easy-peasy "print & go", and suitable for distance learning.
I recently updated all of my packets, so now all of my products have that clickable option!
These activities also make a cute bulletin board, door or hallway display.
Be sure and use the 9, easy-cut, onomatopoeia “call out” bubbles, such as Crash, Boom, Bam to add some extra pop & pizzazz to your display.
There's also a "call out" worksheet students can trace & color, along with a matching poster.
If appropriate, take that teachable moment to teach/review adjectives & nouns. Click the LINK to grab a copy.
