Name Station: picture of student with typed name for students to match letters to name.

Literacy: Name station. Write each child's name and tape a picture to the card. Have letter tiles for the children to practice spelling their friends names as well as their own. Kids love spelling things they can identify with, like new friends' names!

I like this idea to help with name recognition and spelling in pre-K. Also help with the switch from all upper to upper and lower case name spelling.
