Do you use your students names in questions?

I liked to use my students names in tests throughout the year and as part of spelling word sentences during the test. I was taught that it made them feel good.
What are your thoughts? Do you use student names on worksheets and as examples?

If you would like me to review other books for kids please leave a comment. It must be useful to either teachers or parents of children age 4 to grade 2.

  1. I use my students names in math word problems. I try to use everyone's name at least once. They like it, but I think this is because I try to personalize the problems. If I have a student who plays guitar, I make it a question about them going to guitar lessons, or learning to play a song, etc. They ask for when it will be their turn.

  2. I used students' names in my math problems and language activities last year during my contract too. It's such a big deal for them and I agree that it makes them feel important. Besides, I'm not creative enough to come up with different names than the ones I already have in my classroom! :P
