For the next few weeks, we’re focusing on name activities. I’m really working with my youngest daughter on identifying her name, so here’s one of the ways we are doing that!
1) Write your child’s name on two notecards. Begin with just the first name. Later, you can add the middle and last name!
2) Cut each letter of the name apart. Use a straight line if your child is already pretty familiar with the spelling of his name. Use a crooked or wavy line if not.
3) Mix up the letters and have your child put her name back together. If your child needs more help, allow them to look at the notecard with the name on it. Also, instead of cutting the name apart with straight lines, use curvy or wavy lines to make it more like a puzzle.
