Class Name Find a Word – Back to School Icebreaker


Product Details

A must have resource for the back to school season! Use this editable name find-a-word template to create a fun icebreaker activity for your students.

This resource is also a great way for students to get to know each other’s names (and how to spell them). Use this activity to start developing a class community from Day 1.

These templates are editable (meaning you can add your own student’s names into the tables). Add in your students names into the invisible table at the bottom of the page. Then add their names to the find-a-word grid one at a time.

What is included:

We have included 4 different editable templates depending on the size of your class:

  • Template for 20 students or less
  • Template for 25 students or less
  • Template for 30 students or less
  • Template for classes over 30 students

How you could use this template:

  • Place on students desks as they enter the classroom on the first day
  • First day / week icebreaker activity
  • A first week homework activity
  • As part of a back to school gift
  • As a fast finisher activity

You could also print out the blank template (before you add any details) and ask students to create their own.

Teacher tip: Don’t forget to add your own name to the Find-a-word grid, you are part of the class community too!


We are passionate about helping teachers here at Rainbow Sky Creations. We hope you and your students enjoy this resource.
