Name Recognition Activities

Sassyfras and Juiciness are beginning to recognize their names, so we've been doing some fun activities.  The Work Plan recently posted a couple of fun name recognition activities you might check out too.

We made quick and easy Halloween placemats yesterday using foam sheets and foam Halloween stickers.  After reading The Work Plan's post, I wrote their name for them on a piece of paper and then put the correct stickers in a pile and let them look through and match the card to spell their name (they needed some help).

I also made them books to "read" that follow the line of Brown Bear.  So it goes "Sassyfras, Sassyfras, what do you see?"  and then I've used pictures of family members to answer.  It was quick and easy to make and they love them.
