Name Writing Practice

Each morning we ask the children to practice writing their name in a book we have in the classroom. We do this as a form of self registration as our children are brought in over a half hour time span but you could use it any other way. The idea being they practice writing their names within the outline of their name. You can gradually extend by including surnames and removing outlines to just have copy writing. Since using this method I have not had a child unable to write thier full name independently by the end of Reception. (this should come out in Primary Sassoon but not sure!)
