Name Recognition #8

Magnet Letters!
Cheap Small Cookie Sheets and a Tub of These Foam Letters is all you need.

I chose foam because it is quiet.
First I let them free play. Then we sorted by color.
 Then we spelled our names. I made cards for them to copy the order of their names. We practiced first, middle, and last names. 

Sometimes we use these for Sunday centers. Sometimes we use these for quiet time.
I have even used them for spelling words.
Another fun activity that costs less than $16 for years of playtime.

Another use for these Magnets is match the sound to the letter game.
"This letter says Oooh"

Name Recognition #7

Tot School/Preschool Activity

Need help recognizing and writing the alphabet? How about your child's name? Here is a perfect activity!

I prewrote the Alphabet (you can write their name) and have the kids paint with Q-Tips each letter.
This is a great activity that is little mess, and it is controlled.
It helps with pencil grip, name recognition, and focusing!

My 2 year old loved this activity as well. There are so many words you could have them paint.
Last name, sight words, spelling words, capitals, lowercases, etc.

Have fun with it and enjoy the quiet focused time with your kiddo!
