Last year in three year old preschool, names were a big deal. So I can only suppose they will be again this year in four year old preschool.
Henry learned to recognize his name pretty early on. At first, he thought any word that started [or even had one] with an H meant it was his name. But he soon learned that there was more to it than that.
Throughout the year they worked on name recognition and spelling. By the end of last year, Henry was able to spell his first name [and write it!!]. He even was able to spell it backwards, which shocked me!
Now, its onto our last name… which for reason seems daunting to me. But with some help of these activities I found, the should come fast enough. Just applying it to our last name instead of his first!
Have some fun with your kids learning to recognize their very own name [it’s very special to them, make it be a special thing!] and then learn to spell it too! They’ll be so proud and you’ll be one proud mama!
