About the file:
This resource idea is such a fun way to introduce spelling and reading. Whether it’s a child’s name, a new word or maybe even a word that your child is struggling to learn.
I actually made this resource quite some time ago and have shared it with mothers with children learning to read and write/spell and they have benefitted greatly alhamdolillah. I use it for my preschoolers too which they love. We usually begin with this resource before any language activity as a fun and refreshing way to start a lesson. You can do the same approach with any language too.
What I love about this resource is that it allows your child to explore different skills. And by using their name as a starting point, they’re more likely to enjoy writing, spelling and reading etc long-term since it has a personal touch.
I find it also helps to use this same approach when introducing new words, for example the word ‘hat’; let your child use this approach i.e spell, match, trace and write ‘hat’ if you run out of ideas.
