You can capture some of that with a special personalized book for each child in your class, which the other kids in the class help to make.
This activity is based on The Important Book by Margaret Wise Brown. Read the book with your kids, then you can talk about the important things about each person in the class. Use printables from The K Files to personalize the book for each child, and then another student can write the book for that child.
