The first week of school we create Our Class Book of Names. Students love to create their own page for the book and then look at the book to see who else has the same first letter in their name as they do. I copy the cover page onto construction paper and use the same color of paper as a back for Our Class Book of Names.
Each student is to write their name on the line, write the first letter from their name in the box and then draw an illustration of themselves for their self portrait.
You can staple or bind the book together to have available in your class library for students to read.
I also like to make copies (in black & white) for each student as a “take home” at the end of the year by making a copy of each page and stapling or binding the book together.
This book can also be found in the Back to School Unit.
This file is in PowerPoint to allow you to edit teacher and student's names.
