I love this idea! I think it might be a little simple for my 2nd graders, so I am going to ask each student a couple of questions (favorite color, favorite food, etc) and then fill out the book. Then we could go through it every morning so that the students really know each other. I can't count the number of times I have asked a student to go get another student and they are like "Who is that?" (and it is December). Maybe I don't do a very good job teaching the kids names to the other students, so I love this idea. Then we can also learn a little more about each student right off the bat.
Thanks for the wonderful idea!!
