Of course Little Mister knows his name but, we are trying to recognize it in print. For some odd reason, my little guy knows the letters T, O and E. He points them out on everything. However, when you ask him to spell toe, he cocks his head to the side and says, "Huh?". HeeHee, I have to laugh because I am so blessed!
Objective- Recognizes first name in print (MS Early Learning Guidelines for Infants and Toddlers: Language Development 1.3.4)
Materials- File folder, letter stamps, paint, card stock, glue, scissors
1. Stamp letters of first name on card stock several times and cut out for game pieces.
2. Stamp letters of name across the top of another page and glue the page inside the file folder.
3. Stamp "Name Game" across the front of the file folder.
4. Glue an envelop inside the folder to hold your game pieces.
Once everything is dry, let the play begin.I mixed up the game piece letter, he then placed the corresponding letter on top of the matching letter on the paper. He loved it and screamed RYLEE every time he completed placing the letters of his name. He then wiped them away and did it again!
We also did some watercolor resist with his name! Simply use white crayons on white paper and paint away to discover what's underneath.
