One of the first words your child will learn to read is their name, and soon their friend’s names also. We use our names a lot at preschool! We write it, we find it, we spell it, it is a very important word to know! Today I made all of the children a laminated mat with their name on it and the letters of their name cut out so they could count them, put them in order, and later we will mix them all up and they will have to find their letters. We already have some kiddos that can read their friend’s names! This morning we had 7 kids that had 5 letters in their name and only 1 child that had 6 letters in their name. We read I Like Myself and passed around a mirror and said what our favorite thing about our self is. At the table we wrote our names and looked in a mirror and drew a self portrait.
