On the first day of school last year, I took a minute to speak with each child in my class. I sat next to the child and showed them the metal board that I had bought at Target. I told them it said "Hello my name is" and that I would like them to write their name in the white area. I then took a picture of the child holding the sign. That first night I put all of the children's pictures and pictures of my assistant and myself on our classroom website. The whole project was super easy but it gave me a quick little check on where each student was (at least as far as writing their name and answering a few questions about themselves and their summer). It was also very appreciated by the parents who could look up pictures of their child's classmates when they were trying to put a face with a name.
