One of the first steps of kids’ education is writing. Being able to write their name correctly is one of the purposes of writing lesson for children. Name is the first thing that they have to recognize and eventually they have to be able to write down their name by themselves correctly.
A selection of trace the name worksheets that you can use and print as your children’s exercise in writing names are available for free. Check out the first name tracing sheet below.
Tracing worksheets provide efficient materials for kids’ writing media. Trace your name worksheets are one of the media to learn writing names. By tracing dots of each letter of a name, children will be used to write down their names. Tracing trains their hand to write things down correctly and if they do it frequently, their hands will unconsciously be used to write faster.
In these tracing worksheets, the names are already given so that children will learn to trace those names first before they start learning to trace theirs. (Lucky you if your kids happened to have the exactly same name!) After that, parents or teachers may try to make some tracing exercises based on their children or students’ own names and ask them to trace it.
