Learning the names of a class can be difficult for some teachers. There are a variety of approaches adopted by teachers from name cards to photographs. A quick and easy method however of learning the names of pupils in your class is to arrange them in alphabetical order according to their first name. This will allow you to become familiar quickly with their names. Give it a go and you will be surprised how it helps you. The usual approach of organising a class by surname does not help at all with familiarisation but this little change can make all the difference?
