This is a wonderful resource to use at the beginning of the school year. I used this project with the book Chrysanthemum by Kevin Henkes. Each student will create their own special name book using the letters in his or her name to write and draw something unique and special about themselves. Students will love to share their books with the class and their families! An added bonus of this project is once students get the hang of it, they can work independently and you can pull groups for those beginning of the year assessments. These sweet little books make nice keepsakes to send home at the end of the year as well. The format makes it super easy to copy, cut pages in half, assemble books, and start working! I hope you enjoy!
