Here is how I used it to work with our little Matthew on his name.

I printed it out and used a highlighter to write Matthew’s name on the first line. This makes it super easy to trace.
I then wrote each letter on individual lines to give him added practice. You can see an example below.
Matthew sat down and worked on tracing the letters in his name.
He then started to trace the individual lines of letters.
Depending on the attention span and skill level, after they trace all of the highlighted letters, you could ask your little one to try and write each letter by itself without tracing. Matthew’s skill level and attention span are just not there yet, but we will get there. He actually did not even trace each of the free standing letters. After a few he got tired and said he was done.
He became frustrated and drew scribble lines. I want learning to be fun for him, so I let him lead. We will hold onto the paper and he can finish it up another day, or even over the course of multiple day.
But what a great job and great effort!
What are some fun ways that you are working on name practice for your preschooler?
