We made our names with dough and baked them today. This experience gave us a great opportunity to discuss letters of the alphabet. WE have been singing the alphabet song on Mitchell’s game. Now we will start the alphabet book and practice this each week.
Children are interested in their names because they represent who they are. They’re an important part of their identity and children are proud of them. Think of how often they’re asked, “What is your name?” and “How old are you?” It is important for children to hear their own names and see it written down because names are abstract. You can’t touch a name or hold it in your hands; children need lots of opportunities to make connections between themselves and the way their name sounds and looks.
