This is the perfect book to have in the classroom at the beginning of the year when you are learning about your students and when their is a substitute teacher. At the beginning of the year take a picture of each student to put on their page and fill out their information. I place all of the pages in a binder. Throughout the year add information and notes about the students. I like to add special things that the students say and do. At the end of the year the student's parents love seeing all of the special things that I have written.
