Have children cut out the letters in their names(we used our sponge paint letters). String them to a paper plate that has been cut in halfand decorated.
Have children cut several circles out of construction paper. On each circle, write one letter of the child's name. Mix up the circles and let thechildren practice spelling their names. Glue in place onto construction paper to create a caterpillar.
Write child's name on heavy cardboard or craft foam. Write the lettersof child's name on clothespins. Store clothespins in a Ziplock bag for children to practice the letter order in their names. This idea comes from the 2008 Aug/Sept Mailbox Magazine.
Use a sharpie to write one letter of the child's name on a bottle cap. Use them to practice spelling out the child's name. There are many more activities you can do with these caps.Place the letters into a bowl and have the children use a cooking spoon to scoop the letters out. Hide them around the room and have the child search them out. Make a bingo game to spell the child's nameinstead of bingo

Name Recognition Bulletin Board
Print each child's name onto cardstock. Send them home for afamily project to decorate with crayons, color, glue, glitter, pasta, cereal, stickers, etc. They turn out really nice and make a beautiful bulletin board. My children really got excited to have"Homework" and were so proud to show their friends how they decorated their names. I really had great family participation for this activity.
