Nothing is more meaningful to a child than his or her name, so use your puppet to give students alliterative names such as “Lucky Lucas” or “Happy Hannah.” Tell students that Pete likes to say words that sound the same at the beginning and give an example using your own name. Then, have students come up and ask Pete to tell them their new name. Pete will whisper this name in your ear and you can tell it to the class or you can use your best puppet voice- whatever you are most comfortable with. Remember to keep the names positive.
