The letters in my name
We set up a name writing station in our studio.
The children in our class continue to have a have a great interest in letters and are very excited to learn to write their names.
The station allows students to pick out the letters in their names using name cards as their guide. This activity is a fine motor activity and helps them recognize the letters in their name and all the letters in the alphabet. It also helps them understand the importance of putting the letters in their proper order.
Some of the children have taken the activity further by showing an interest in how to spell things beyond their names. Two of our students wanted to know how to spell the word "birthday" because it has been a topic of discussion in our class.
When a child is ready we have also provided them with the tools for practicing writing their names.
