Our Class Name Book

I know many of us like to make class books.  This is one that I recently made with a group of students in summer school.  They happened to be working on learning the letters and the order of those letters in their name.  But class books at the beginning of the year don't have to be only about their name and how many letters.  

I love to add photos of my students to class books.  Just makes them a bit more personal to them.  And who doesn't like looking through books with all of your friend's photos in them?  Such fun!

Making a class book at the beginning of the year is a great way to get your year started and a great way for students to learn about each other.  Older students could do one that tells about themselves rather than just their name and how many letters.

Do you do a class book at the beginning of the year?  I would love to hear about it! 


  1. Yes indeed. They become some of the most popular reads in my class!
