This is our new attendance wall.
The coconut tree is made of green and brown cartolina (colored tag board) and the coconuts are brown craft foam.
I cut out the beginning letters of each child's name from craft foam
and glued them onto black paper.
Then I printed out their names with their pictures and laminated them.
I have been exposing the kids to their names and the names of their classmates.
And now, most of them know the beginning letters of their names
- letter sounds and what it looks like.
Some recognize their names and are able to write some of the letters.
Some recognize even the names of their classmates!
