We made a class "friends" book that's patterned after "Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do you see?" The children chose a photo or several photos of their friends in class and pasted these on a page. Afterwards, they decorated the page by drawing around the photo. This activity was a great way for the children to see if they remember their classmates' names.
