Here is an adorable class book idea for the song "Willoughby Wallaby". It's a wonderful way to learn classmates' names at the beginning of the year, and it's embedded with tons of literacy skills, as well! My class loved it so much that we played "Jilloughby Jallaby" and "Zilloughby Zallaby" etc. Perfect for teaching beginning sound deletion, the letter W, as well as any other letters if you expand on the song.
Have your students sit in a circle and sing the 1st line, pass an elephant around the circle and watch the students have a great time learning.
Laminate the student pages and put in the reading corner for the students to read over and over again.
