Consider making dinosaur door tags. The door tag itself is a construction paper dinosaur with googly eyes. In addition, give each resident a special “dinosaur name”. For instance, my resident Sarah is “Tri-Sarah-Tops.” Alexis is “Alexis Rex.” Gary is “Garydactyl.” And so forth. This is a great door tag for later in the year when residents are familiar with the true names of their neighbors, as this idea sparks up conversation amongst residents about their special names.
