Learning to write our names

Woowee September has been a busy one!  I'm back to teaching part-time and finally getting into a routine.  Since the kiddos are not yet old enough for kindergarten I've decided to try a "homemade kindergarten" program on the days I am not working!  So stay tuned for updates on what we've been doing!

One of the first things we do in kindergarten is learn about our names.  I've created a booklet that I use every morning so the kids can practice writing and building their names.  It has 20 pages and each page has a different activity.  For example, one of the first pages is rainbow tracing and the kids have to use 3 colors and trace the letters in their name.  I love having all the practice pages in a booklet form because it makes the prep time so much easier.  Once the booklet is made and I've written their names in it I just have to pull it out every morning and let them practice.  It's also great for those kiddos who take longer to learn to write their name because I can just copy more pages and add it in their book and use it during small group work time.

**Update:  I just updated my booklet to include a fun graphic on each page!**  So if you have previously purchased the booklet please re download it (for free) to get the newest updated version.

I STILL have a couple of kinders that are having difficulty writing their name after 5 weeks of it. :( I only have them for 2 1/2 hours a day and they get no parental help at home no matter how much I TELL the parents they HAVE to be practicing their name. Oh yea, I am now a follower of your FB and TPT store.
