Fall is just around the corner and we are still feeling that back-to-school excitement and vibes! Students and teachers alike are getting into their groove, and the thrill of seeing friends and colleagues still hangs in the air.
In your classroom you are probably reading back-to-school stories, doing all the alphabet crafts, counting activities, and of course, name practice. Name practice is such a HUGE part of beginning literacy for little learners! It is one of the first writing skills that students learn and it is empowering to little learners.
There are so many great ways to teach little learners their names. Preschoolers need to first be able to identify the letters in their name and be able to sort those letters into the correct order. Activities like our Flower Pot Names or Apple Stack Names are perfect for this stage of learning.
Once students can recognize and spell their name, they’ll need to learn to write it. This stage can be more challenging for little learners to master as this is often their first writing experience! They are so used to having the freedom to scribble, draw and color as they want. Making name writing engaging and fun is no easy feat, but we are here to help!
What better way to improve your students’ handwriting than with writing their own name with pencils, crayons, highlighters and markers?
In addition to this worksheet, here are some of the Best Writing Teaching Tools for Little Learners. And why not teach them science while helping them improve their handwriting with my Apple Writing Center learning activity?
