I read this book on the very first day of school to make note of all the students' names, and their uniqueness. Instead of beginning homework, we do a mini-project where parents help to fill out a worksheet that states the student's name, it's origin, why it's special, and so on! I then have my kiddos decorate their names (that I cut out in bubble letters) whichever way they like. This past year, I had names with cake sprinkles, glitter glue, beads, sequins, collages, and even pom-poms! I try my best to laminate the ones I can and hang them up in the classroom ALL YEAR!

Biscuit books are cute, short, and have repeated lines. I like this series because of those things solely. I read this not for content, but for motivation… when my students listen to me read these books, they tend to join in!HERE (click to go)!
