Name Tags


I spotted them as I walked to my classroom for the day that morning. Hearts stuck all over the walls. Each heart had a name written on it. Interesting...

It was during the morning announcements that they were explained. It was a game. The students were to find their own names and bring that heart to the activities room. They would get a prize.

So, for the rest of the day, students came in wearing these hearts. Some complained that they couldn't find their own. As the day progressed, more and more of them had found theirs.

Then 6th period came in. Nearly half came into class with hearts...that were not their own.

"Alice, I have yours..."

Yep, they brought in hearts of their classmates. And gave them to them.

Well, it was "kindness week". That was rather kind of them.

(And it was an interesting game. I wonder how many hearts the activities room got back.)

  1. That was nice of them. Better than taking them and throwing them away.

  3. Aww what a great story. I think kids mostly will help each other out when given the chance. I'd like to believe adults will, too!

  5. That's nice. It seems like bringing people their names is a good way to celebrate kindness week.

  6. I would say that this is the best game of all. I will suggest to my daughter, who teaches middle school.

    1. I'd never seen it before. I wonder where the school's ASB got the idea from.
