Easy to Customize Name Activity for Preschool

Before we begin to look at all of the ways you can use the printable name activity for preschool, let me show you how easy the books are to personalize for your kids.

I know that you don’t have a lot of extra time to make editable activities for your kids, so I make sure to make sure that these books are easy to customize.  You don’t have to install any new fonts on your computer, but you do need to use the most recent version of Adobe Acrobat Reader.….and you need to use your laptop or desktop.

To customize your little books, all you have to do is type your kids’ names and the individual letters into the class list for at the beginning of the resource.  When you do this, all of the details will be automatically added to the different pages throughout the document.

Customize it!

There are many page options that you can choose from.  You can use the print planner pages to help you determine which pages to print.  Create a book with a variety of pages, or create a simple book with duplicate pages for repetition.

Easy to Assemble Name Practice Books

Again, because you don’t have much time, I make the books very easy to assemble.  You can prepare enough for an entire class in no time.

The books print 4 per page and can be easily assembled.  After printing, stack one set of pages neatly into a pile.

The name activity for preschool is easy to print.  This picture shows the printed pages with a stapler and scissors.

Next, place two staples on the left side of each book, as shown in the picture below.

Customize Your Name Books with Many Page Options

There are many pages that you can use to customize your own name activities for preschool.  Select the pages that meet your needs to create your customized books.  Here are the page options that are included in the resource.

Personalized Title Page:

Kids can work on name recognition and naming the letters in their names as they color the title pages.  Can they find their book when it is in a pile with other books?  What makes their name look different?  Help kids find some unique things about their names.

Beginning Letter of My Name Page:

The most important letter of their most important word is the first letter of a child’s name.

Kids can name that first letter, finger trace the large letter, color the large bubble letter, and identify or circle the letter in their written name.

Name the Letters Page:

On this page, the letters print with a dot below them.  Kids can focus on learning each individual letter and begin to learn how to spell their names as they touch each dot on this page.

On this personalized name book page, there is a dot under each letter of the name Joanna.  A finger is touching the dot under the first letter of the name.

Name Tracing on Dotted lines:

If your kids are ready to learn to write their names, the document includes three customized tracing pages.  On the first, kids can trace the dotted letters of their names.   You can use a marker to make a small colored dot on the starting point to help beginners properly form letters.

Tracing – Dotted with Three Lines:

The name activity for preschool includes another tracing page. This one includes lines to help kids learn each letter’s proper height and formation.  This page also helps kids see that some letters are tall and some are short.  Do any of the letters have tails, hooks, or dots?

Tracing – Over the Solid Line:

I think that it’s difficult to see letters that are traced over dotted lines.  If you like a cleaner-looking tracing method, try this page.  Kids can trace the letters by writing over thick gray letters. Again, you can use a marker to make a small colored dot on the starting point to help beginners.

Rainbow Writing Page:

Kids will enjoy tracing the bubble letters with one crayon color and then tracing over that color with additional crayons. Want to make this activity more playful?   Make a color die from a small square cube to help kids determine which colors to use as they trace.

You can certainly make amazing personalized books with the resource, but there are other ways that you can use it.  Print the same name onto 4 tracing pages.  Use it as a sign-in sheet when your kids arrive every morning.  Place them in a binder and you will have a record of how your kids have progressed.
