As your young child begins school, one of the first skills she will practice is writing her name. But even before school starts, young children want to be able to spell and write their names. As with all skills, practice (and patience!) makes perfect. Your little one will take great pride in being able to sign her papers or label her belongings, so guided practice is very helpful. During my years in the pre-K and kindergarten classrooms, I developed an easy and helpful way to teach children how to write their names. This teaching aide can be constructed in two ways - one way allows your child to trace over the letters you have written. Once this is accomplished, you can introduce a second style of worksheet that allows your child to copy a writing sample while making each letter on his own. So grab a piece of unlined paper and a sharpie marker and follow these directions for creating name writing worksheets that will have your child legibly writing her name in no time!
