Name Practice for Preschoolers (Thanksgiving Themed Printable)

Sharing is caring!

As I shared with you recently, I am in the process of teaching Matthew (4) how to spell and write his name.

I am on the hunt for activities you can do with your kids to help with name practice for preschoolers.

I love this Thanksgiving themed free worksheet set Kelli from 3 Boys and a Dog create for us to use.

It is a three page printable (click to print). Each page offers lines for your little on to practice writing their name on as well as festive images to celebrate Thanksgiving. One sheet has Thanksgiving food, one has a Pilgrim and an Indian and the third one has the Mayflower on it. So fun and the perfect opportunity to talk about Thanksgiving and explore with some books! ((hint))

Name Practice for Preschoolers

Since Matthew can’t write his name independently, I used a highlighter and wrote his name out for him.

Then he used a pencil to trace the letters.

Even if his work is not precise, that is ok. He is learning.

Then we went letter by letter saying the name of each one.

He only wanted to write his name once. We will work up to more as his attention span grows.

Then, we used the rest of the space to draw a fun picture.

Come back tomorrow and I will show you how I used these same Thanksgiving themed printables with my older boys for copy work practice.

  2. Thanks for sharing this. My oldest is having trouble making the transition to lined paper. It’s always fun to write on something seasonal! I’m adding this to our writers workshop box. Good luck with the name writing. Matthew is a long name to learn, but I’m sure he’ll have it down in no time! 🙂
