We counted the letters of each child's name and graphed how many letters there were. It was a great way to work on a couple of skills simultaneously. I printed each child's name in a different color to help the younger kids identify which name we were looking at so we could count the letters together.
I got the idea from this website. http://www.teach123school.com/2014/06/back-to-school-books-and-freebie.html
