Determine what names from the class the child recognizes by identifying names on cubbies, artwork, etc.
Have the names of all the children in the class on separate cards. See if the child can identify her own name and those of her friends.
The child begins to associate beginning sounds with specific letters, specifically those in her own name.
Parents can begin letter-sound recognition using familiar names, including family members, pets, and friends.
