What’s in a Name?
Rainbow Name Writing
Just because a student hasn’t yet mastered a pincer grasp doesn’t mean they can’t start practicing name writing. Bingo markers are an easy way for students to paint their names with dots. This helps them get a feel for the letter shapes and builds letter recognition.
Dry Erase Boards
Students love to use art supplies to practice name writing. Children can trace their names with water colors, and still see the lines underneath.
Sensory Tray Name Writing
Sensory trays, sucn as rice, salt, flour, or sand are terrific ways for preschoolers to practice writing their names. The extra benefit of adding sensory learning uses more of their brains and helps cement the letters that they are learning.
A great addition to a writing center is a set of Doodle Pro writing toys. This picture captures the very first time that Lucy wrote her name. She was so proud of this accomplishment!
