It was our first class book, and they were OBSESSED. Not just for the first few days, but for the whole year! We had to start sending it home because the kids were so in love with the book and wanted to share it with their families. The parents loved it too! Making this book also helped the children to learn each others' names and served as a quick name writing assessment tool for me! I also want to share this amazing resource from Doodle Bugs Teaching. She has tons of downloads to share!

Directions:1. Print out each page on cardstock. For page 3, print one for each child.
2. Children glue their photo onto the page and write their name three times. They can decorate around their photo with stickers or stamps if desired.
3. Glue your photo onto the second to last page, and class photos onto the first and last page.
4. Laminate the book.
5. Assemble and bind the book. Personally, I like to put the children's names in alphabetical order. An easy way to bind it is to three hole punch each page and use three binder rings to attach them.
