Learning to Recognize Family Names

I wanted a simple, fun way for Abby to start recognizing the names of everyone in her family.  She knows which letters our names start with, but now she can clearly see all the letters.

I printed off 4 sheets of white cardstock, each with one of our names at the top.  I taped a picture of each family member on as well and stuck them in clear sheet protectors for long lasting use!  I printed off another sheet of cardstock with all four names on it and cut them up into individual letters.  Those I covered with contact paper before sticking some velcro to the backs.  With more velcro on the outside of the sheet protectors, Abby can practice spelling our names independently and I can even check them later to see how she did!  She has an easy time putting her letters in the proper order while using the name above as a reference.  I’ll probably let her get familiar with this process a few more times and then try covering up part or all of the name and see how she does!
