I haven't really sat down and tried to teach my kids how to write their names. I introduced their letters and showed them how to do it and left it up to them to ask me if they wanted to continue. Henry is really into it! He loves writing his letters. Yesterday, he asked how to write his 'R' because before he was only doing his 'H', 'E' and 'N'. This letter has been the easiest for him to get by far! Look how great he's doing!Marcail is a different story. She wasn't interested in learning how to write her letters. It's only been in the last month that she cared to learn how to write the 'M' and then the 'A' in her name. She really prefers, however, to just stick with the 'M' and that's ok with me. She writes a stellar 'M' in my opinion!
