I taught in China for several years and at my last school had 64 grade 1 students.
First, I had the Ss. write their English names on desk cards (many Ss. did not have English names) - send note home to parents etc.
Then I took a picture of each S. holding their name card.
I used the pictures to learn their names, but also for parent interviews - when you have 4 Tom's ....
While I was taking the Ss. pictures, the class was drawing a picture of themselves and printing their English name on a sheet which went up on the classroom wall.
