License Plate Glyph

Hi blog friends! I'm Marlene from I Heart Teaching Elementary. I am excited to be joining Me and My Gang as part of the Third Grade Lounge. I love collaborating with other teachers and finding new ideas to use in my classroom. This will be my 9th year teaching and I've been in third for all of it. I really enjoy this age and can't imagine teaching any other grade.

For my first post, I'd like to share an activity I will be doing on Tuesday which is the first day of school. One of the activities I will be doing is a license plate glyph. I start off by reading the book Chrysanthemum by Kevin Henkes.



 It's a great book that teaches about not caring what others think and loving your name even if it's a little different. After I read it aloud and discuss the theme, the kids complete the license plate glyph. I got the glyph from Education World.  After they are all finished, we share them and I put them up on display. The license plate is in word so that it is able to be changed. So I provided the link to education world. Here is an example of the info you can include on yours.
