Preschool Name

Preschool post! It's been awhile since I've posted about preschool, but I wanted to share our recent preschool activity.  This past year, I worked with my youngest on spelling her name.  We printed each letter from her name on it's own piece of paper. An easy way practice how to spell her name.  Don't have access to a printer, write each letter on a piece of paper with a sharpie or pen.


Then we mix up the papers and I would say the letters in her name and she would point to that letter.  After a bit, then she would put her name in order herself.  This is also something you could do to help with letter recognition.  As your child starts to recognize the letters in their own name, you could start spelling other names or words to help with learning their letters.  

Another way you cold use this is matching uppercase to lower case letters.  With this, I would just write each letter out instead of print each letter to save on ink.  You could even make them front and back to save on paper as well. Such as letters A-M on one side and N-Z on the other. 

To keep the papers from getting ripped or torn, you could put them in the sheet protectors. 

Depending on how far you want to take this activity, you have many options, but for a simple way help your kiddo learn their name it doesn't take much.
