Community Hero Badges
Create clever name Badges for year-round fun.
Create fun name Badges for multiple purposes from back-to-school orientation to field trips and dramatic play. As an icebreaker activity, allow students to print or handwrite their names and embellish as desired. Pair students and switch partners at timed intervals until all students have introduced themselves to others in the class. Students also share one way how they plan to be a good helper in the class. The Community Helper Badge activity helps the students realize how each person is an important member of the classroom community.
Create fun Badges for back-to-school, field trips, dramatic play or parties.
