Name Writing Practice Activity: Stocking Edition
We have a super fun free worksheet for you that your little one will love! I love to find creative ways to help children learn to write and practice their name. I give a few tips here—> how to teach your child to write their name.,,, and, today I have a fun worksheet to help with name writing practice! I thought that it would be fun for you little one to practice writing their name on the stockings! You could also practice writing other people’s names on the stockings as well. Remember when you are helping your little one to write their name to make sure to teach him to start with a capital letter and then the rest of the letters are lower case. Most children seem to initially learn and write in all capital letters. Continue to reinforce that most letters that you read and write are lower case letters. These stockings are also great for fine motor practice…the name spot can be small, especially for those with a longer name. Holding the pencil and practicing name writing in such a tiny space is a great fine motor challenge as well! When I am helping a child learn to write, I sometimes use tracing paper,or a cool tracing light to make things fun! Here are a few of my favorite tools!

Madreen Karle is a master first grade reading teacher with over 30 years of classroom experience. She taught reading in a special needs and English as a Second Language classroom. After retiring she wrote a reading program to help others learn how to teach reading. She is a trusted educator and author of 5 books to help teach children to read and write. In addition to her books, she is a mentor for 3 websites that give reading teacher tips (Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound Reading, Mrs. Karle’s Reading Patch, and Mrs. Karle’s Handwriting Patch). Through her teaching she learned that confidence was the key to learning to read. A child who is not confident at reading does not like to read and struggles to read. Mrs. Karle created “sunshine moments” to help teach children how to grow their confidence and learn to read.
Meeghan Karle Mousaw (Madreen’s daughter) has her Master’s in Special Education. She has 8 years experience teaching children to read online. In addition, she developed a curriculum to teach children handwriting called The Handwriting Patch. With the Handwriting Patch learning is fun because children learn to draw and learn handwriting at the same time. In 2019 The Handwriting Patch curriculum became an amazon best seller the first year it was released, helping thousands of kids learn handwriting with a unique, fun method. She is mom to 6 kids, each with differently learning abilities and struggles.
The Reading Patch was established by the creators of Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound Reading. Together they have been featured on the NBC media outlets and Parents Magazine online. Over the last 8 years in their online platform, Madreen and Meeghan have worked tirelessly with teachers, homeschoolers and parents looking to help children learn to read to become a trusted authority in teaching children to read and advocating early literacy skills. They often partner with other educational experts to deliver the most current information to the Reading Patch community.
