Name Practice

To do a little name practice this month I decided to put the letters of his name on little pumpkins. I had the pumpkins sitting out on the floor and just asked him to use the letters to spell his name. He just stared at me and told me he didn't know how to spell his name. I reminded him that he could in fact spell his name. We sang his name song to remind him:
There was a boy that mama loved and Jacob was his name o',
J.A.C.O.B.
J.A.C.O.B.
J.A.C.O.B.
And Jacob was his name o'!
He then chose to participate and pick the letters in order to spell his name. For some reason he always forgets the A when spelling his name. I give a gentle reminder and he squeezes it in. After he put is name together, I left the pumpkins out. Occasionally I would walk by and switch them up not saying anything. When he noticed the first time he said, "That is not my name." And proceeded to correct it. From then on I would walk by and rearrange two pumpkins to try to catch his eye. Just a little added practice.

  1. Funny my son's name is Jacob also and I used to sing him that same song. Almost the exact same words too.
