Young children will develop pre-writing skills and name recognition.

What You Need:

•clear plastic A4 envelopes
•various coloured white board markers
•coloured A4 size cardboards
•black marker

What You Do:
  1. Write each child's name on a sheet of cardboard with the black marker, using foundation script of course!.

  2. Slip into the clear plastic envelopes.

  3. Children can select their own name, and using the white board makers, they can trace over their name.

  4. Be sure to use various colours to allow the children to make choices.

  5. This is great for children's eye-hand co-ordination, and a good way to develop pre-reading skills.
