Today I have a name writing activity to help children learn to write names! We are going to make Printable Thanksgiving Place Cards for Kids. My children love to help set the table. They help daily with setting the table but on holidays and special occasions, they love to make place cards! They like to figure out where people will sit. They like to show people their place to sit. They like to create the place cards and decorate them. I created these Printable Thanksgiving Place Cards for Kids for my own children. I hope yours enjoy as well! (I will be creating some for Christmas too!)
Printable Thanksgiving Place Cards for Kids
Anyway, I like to always reinforce when teaching a child to write their name (or someone else’s name), make sure you teach that the first letter is a capital letter, or upper case letter. Then reinforce that all of the other letters are lowercase or little letters. Many children who are just learning to write just write in upper case letters. It is great to reinforce that most of the letters are lower case. For my little people I like to write down the name on another piece of paper and have them copy the name. I point out…see the upper case letter? See the lower case letters? A few of my children are old enough to write well and so they often help the younger kids.
So here we are making the Printable Thanksgiving Place Cards for Kids. We colored and cut out each place card and put it on a piece of construction paper to make it stand out better. We just lay the place cards on the plates but you can make the construction paper into a little tent and have it stand up if you wanted.

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.
