Dot Sticker Name Recognition ActivityWhile doing this activity preschoolers will learn to recognize the letters in their name and the correct order of those letters. They will also develop fine motor skills while peeling and sticking the dot stickers.
After doing this activity with my 4-year-old daughter, she was so much more aware of the letters in her name and surprisingly already could put some of the letters in the correct order. I consider that a success! Especially since she really enjoyed doing it.
