Name Tracing & Writing Practice Booklet

Booklets with a variety of activities in them can really help give context to the information kids are getting. If all kids do is trace the letters of their name, for example, they might struggle to write it independently. 

It’s also important that kids learn to read and recognize their name, especially if they are attending daycare, preschool, or kindergarten. 

Why Name Writing and Reading Practice is Important

  • Their name will be labeled on everything when they go to school
  • Children feel important when they can recognize and write their names
  • Knowing their names and those of their peers builds community
  • School-aged children will need to print their name on assignments

How to Use a Name Tracing Booklet to Practice Name Writing

When you’re first starting out, introduce things slowly. Toddlers and younger preschoolers can practice recognizing their name (and the letters in it) with the coloring page. As their hand-eye coordination improves you can move onto name tracing and eventually independent writing.

You’ll know kids are ready to start practicing printing their name when they are able to hold a pencil correctly and recreate simple shapes like Xs and squares. 

Another idea is to print out the full booklet and have kids complete one page at a time throughout the school year. 

Kids will love the variety in the booklet, and this free printable is a great way to gauge where kids are at developmentally too!
