Back to School Name Activity

Help your students recognize, spell, and write their names with this editable Back to School Name Practice Activity!

It’s a fun, hands-on resource to add to your back to school morning tubs for your preschoolers and kindergarteners.

Practicing identifying and reading their names will help your students recognize letters and sounds, which are foundational skills for reading and writing.

As they use magnetic letters and a dry erase marker to build and write their names, they will also work on developing their fine motor skills.
