Growing in Pre K

I have a new idea to list under Emergent Literacy - Names. We read the book A My Name is Alice and then created our own pages using the formula ____ My name is _________ and I like ___. We have lots of names that start with C and L, so we had candy, cupcakes, and lots of lollipops. One little boy who needed a word that started with H (since his name started with H) was stuck. He didn't want to choose hamburgers, hotdogs, hats, or helicopters. We put it down to think about for a while. In a few minutes he was "helping" me, which he very often does. We both loved the idea of him choosing "likes to help." He then looked down at his own school t-shirt and copied the letters (mirror image) to go on his picture with two characters he drew. Every year I laminate and selfishly save one of the class books we make. I think I know which one it will be this year....
