Make Name Pattern Art!
One of the first words every kindergartener learns to read or spell is his own name. And because it's personal, children enjoy seeing, playing with, and creating artwork with their names. So what better way to practice reading and basic math than with a word your child is familiar with? In this activity, your child will write and color in his name to improve his letter recognition and patterning skills.

- Blank, 1" graph paper (Do an internet search for “one-inch graph paper template.” You’ll find several free sites from which you can print as many sheets as you need!)
