To recognise own name in different places such as on our peg, drawer, self-registration, name card etc.
You can make a name card/label and hide it in different places for your child to find. E.g. amongst toys, under the table, in the garden. You could add other family members names such as Mum, Dad for them to start to distinguish between names of importance.
You could add name cards at dinner so each family member sits in a certain place.
To write own name by tracing or copying name card or independently.
We have sent home a name card to help your child to practise writing their name and this will be sent on Tapestry for you to have.
You may wish to practise the first letter of your child’s name, so they are confident at making a representation of their name. However, if your child is confident at writing their name you may wish to focus on their surname.
Writing the name in yellow for your child to trace allows them to understand where to make their mark.
The children can write their names in different ways such as using paint, chalk, paint brushes and water outside, sticks in sand/mud, using magnetic letters etc.
