Name Tracers

For a great way to help children develop
fine motor skills,
name recognition,
and handwriting,
make name tracer cards . . .

Carefully write the child's name on a piece of paper (I used name plates from a local teacher supply store), preferably with handwriting lines.
Laminate it (you could even just cover it with clear packing tape).
Children use a wet-erase marker (I have found these clean up much easier than the dry-erase ones) to trace "the train track" of their name.
They can easily wipe them off with a diaper wipe or wet cloth and repeat it.
Have several marker colors available and encourage them to let each marker have a chance to ride on their name train track.
