This project is an attempt to build a comprehensive database of Arabic place names that covers the entire world, not just place names in the Arabic speaking world. The place names are proofread carefully to ensure adherence to the rules of hamza orthography, something often ignored in most publications. The database gives the correct name in Arabic script, its name in English or transliteration, spelling variants, and common errors in spelling. Frequency of variants is also given.
Each student is given Person card with information that matches other cards held by classmates. They need to ask each other questions about who they are in German so they are able to find a match. If they think they have found their match, they compare emojis to confirm. This activity can be expanded by having students describe themselves or describe each other at the beginning or end of the activity.
In this activity, students will have the opportunity to practice greetings and introductions by practicing vocabulary appropriate for certain times of the day and practicing formal/informal greetings.
This unit uses the childrenŐs names as the foundation for teaching language, alphabetics, one-to-one counting, sequencing, concepts of print, and phonemic awareness. The childŐs own name is the most important word to him. Although many children come to school with an awareness of environmental print, they see the environmental print words as a whole.
In this lab, students learn about francophone culture and name pronunciation through discussion of la fête. They also practice demonstrative pronouns.

This activity serves as an introduction to a narrative writing assignment. To provide context for this activity, teachers will give students an overview of the Census Bureau. Then, students will complete a Quickwrite about their name and its history. After that, students will examine and answer questions about census data on popular last names, listen to a story about names, and complete a Quickwrite about that story. To further prepare for their narrative writing assignment about names (which is not part of this activity), students will jot down their thoughts in a graphic organizer.
Students will review basic introductory phrases. The students will then take turns introducing themselves to their classmates, discussing their names, years in school, majors, and nationalities. They will review all of the information they learned with a challenge round at the end.
