In this activity, a child learns to spell his/her name by constructively building and experiencing it. This sensory play is an extension of my first name spelling activity here and this is an example of constructivism, Jean Piaget’s learning theory.
Areas of development:
Here, the child will go through 5 steps, learning to write their name.
1. Point & say it
2. Build it
3. Feel it
4. Trace it
5. Write it
Simply print out the printable and cut them into A5 sizes (follow the dotted line). You may also visit https://mommychew.com/main/name-spelling-ii/ to see how we did it with our daughter :)
We hope you have fun.
