Use the name tags provided to create a pocket chart of students names with a photo. Talk about kids names. Talk about the letters in each child's name. Keep the pocket chart on display at the beginning of the school year. Use the my friends book to staple a book for each child. During the writing station, the children will use the pocket chart name tags to copy their classmates' names into their book. The kids love going up to the pocket chart to take down a friend's name and copy it into their book!
