1. This resource provides you with a worksheet that shows how many letters the child has in their name. The worksheet connects literacy with math because it asks the student to count the letters in their name, show the number on a ten frame, write the number, and illustrate the quantity.
2. The next resource asks the students to use different writing utensils (pencil, crayon, marker, and pen) to practice writing numbers, their name, or sight words. I have one sheet for each of those skills. On each utensil they can write the number or word multiple times.
3. The pencil puzzle allows the teacher to make cute, personalized puzzles by handwriting one letter on each piece of a pencil. Students with long names will have long puzzles and those with short names will have short pencils. These can be glued to paper or kept in a baggie for continued practice. I recommend copying these on card stock so they are easier for the children to manipulate.
I have found all three of these activities to be engaging and fun for students and I hope you and your students do too! :)
