Who Stole the Cookie From the Cookie Jar?

I like to do this in the first week of school to help learn everyone's name. We use the pocket chart to substitute names of all the students.

Once we get good at saying the rhyme, I use cookies with letters on them that they steal. Instead of saying cookie, we say "____ took the _(letter)_ from the cookie jar." I hand out some letters so that everyone has a cookie, they hide it (sit on it), then when I say a certain letter, whoever has it comes forward and puts it in the pocket chart.
