The Power of Names in Pre-K
I believe that helping children learn to recognize and write their own names is one of the most powerful ways to connect literacy in a meaningful way.
It also helps children develop fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination, which are important for later writing tasks. Additionally, recognizing their own name can help children feel a sense of identity and belonging in the classroom or even at home, which can lead to increased engagement and motivation.
Recognizing and writing their own name provides a foundation for learning other letters and words. As children learn to recognize and write the letters in their name, they also begin to understand the connection between letters and sounds, which is a crucial component of learning to read and write.
