Name Graph



Welcome to the exciting world of educational exploration through our Name Graph activity, specifically designed to coincide with the celebration of National Skyscraper Day on September 3. This engaging activity, brought to you by Happy Hive Homeschooling, offers not only a fun project but also substantial educational benefits that will captivate young minds.

Educational Benefits:

  1. Graphical Understanding: Our Name Graph activity introduces students to the concept of graphing, helping them comprehend the correlation between data points. By plotting their name letters on the graph paper, students gain a visual understanding of data representation.
  2. Mathematical Concepts: As students assign numerical values to each letter of their name, they’re subtly engaging in basic mathematics. This exercise fosters number recognition, sequencing, and addition skills.
  3. Alphabet Learning: The correlation of each letter with its numerical position in the alphabet introduces or reinforces letter sequencing, an essential early literacy skill.
  4. Spatial Reasoning: Creating a skyscraper by coloring in squares on the graph paper encourages spatial reasoning. Students visually grasp how individual units contribute to the whole, enhancing their spatial awareness.
  5. Creative Expression: While the activity centers around a structured graph, it also offers creative freedom. Students decide how to arrange their name letters, choosing colors and designs that make their skyscraper uniquely their own.
  6. Critical Thinking: Involving students in designing their skyscraper fosters critical thinking. They make decisions about placement, color, and alignment, stimulating their cognitive abilities.
  7. Fine Motor Skills: The precision required to color squares and letters on the graph paper enhances fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination.
  8. Individuality and Self-Expression: Each student’s skyscraper is a reflection of their individuality. This activity encourages self-expression while promoting a sense of accomplishment.

How It Works:

In this comprehensive activity pack, you’ll find everything you need to facilitate the Name Graph project:

  • Clear instructions for easy implementation.
  • Pre-designed graph paper with spaces for student names and corresponding numbers.
  • Sample completed skyscrapers in both color and black-and-white for reference.
  • Alphabet letters with numerical values for student reference.
  • Tips on counting squares and creating depth in the graph.

Not only does this activity fit perfectly as a “5-minute filler” or a Sub Tub activity, but it also extends beyond the classroom, encouraging students to explore graphing concepts in real-life scenarios.


With the Name Graph activity, students explore the world of graphing, numbers, letters, and creativity, all while celebrating National Skyscraper Day. We, at Happy Hive Homeschooling, are committed to making learning engaging, enriching, and exciting. Empower your students with a one-of-a-kind skyscraper experience that sparks their curiosity and fuels their educational journey.

May your educational path be blessed with creativity and learning!

Warm regards, Christy (AKA Mrs. Crabtree) and the Happy Hive Homeschooling Team
