Last year, the first thing I tackled with my then preschooler was how to spell her name. She knew some of the letters in her name and would sign her little masterpieces with a few of the letters from her name, in random order.
So, I gathered up as many alphabet manipulatives that I could find and we got to work spelling her name with each of the different kinds of letters we had.
That’s all it took! One morning of doing this and she had the spelling of her name down pat! After all, this is one of the most important and meaningful words in a child’s life at this age.
Plus, we both had lots of fun! And Rachel was so thrilled that she could now spell her name. Just look at that happy face! 🙂
