Do I have "Juan" too many?

I just got a list of my students for this year. I am very lucky and only have 20 little bugs right now. But, out of 20, 5 of them are named Juan!! Truly! And get this, they all have the same middle name!! No joke!

Now, if you know 1st graders you know that they know their first name and maybe their middle name but they just don't know their last name, yet! What can I do? What will I be able to call them so they know who I'm talking to??

My witty husband's suggestion?!?!
"Juan, two, three, four, five..."

Don't ya love it?!?!?

I love your husband's humour! Nice one! I also like that Juan is still a popular name...I'm named Susan, and I went through school too with always at least one other girl named Susan or some variation, in the class. I now work with two other Susans and a Sue, in my office!!! We use Susan and our last name initial, to say who we are talking about.....good luck with the new class too!

thanks so much for coming to my blog and leaving a comment, I've added you to my blogroll :-D I really like how you've set up your blog.

Are you SERIOUS? What was the front office thinking when they made your class list? I used to always get a lot of "Gabriellas" in my class.
