This is how I choose names so that everyone gets a chance to find something in our Morning Messages (and whenever else they are needed). I take each child’s picture on the 1st day of school, laminate it, and then punch them out with one of my Stampin’ Up! circle punches. I tape them on to jumbo popsicle sticks from Discount School Supply and write the child’s name sideways with a permanent marker.
At this time in the year, I choose one child each day to be the stick-picker. They get to call out the child’s name who will come to the board next. This is great for even my non-readers because they can identify everyone just by their picture. I keep them in a plastic cup next to my bench.
