Spot Your Name

ages 3-5


Paper, markers, alphabet flashcards

Activity Detail

This is a fun way to encourage letter recognition and spelling of your child's name: Have your child write down her name on a piece of paper or if they are still learning to write their name, write it yourself in bold, capital letters. Then, using alphabet flashcards, which you can either purchase or make yourself, show each letter, one-by-one. When a letter matches one that is in your child's name, she crosses it out with a marker. When all the letters are crossed out, she shouts "bingo." This game is best played with more than one child, but is also a good learning tool for just one younger child who is learning to spell her name. If you like, you can give a sticker to the "winner" for a job well done.
