Name Writing Practice

Name Writing Practice

Whether you are teaching children to write their names for the first time, or transitioning them to cursive handwriting, Name Writing Practice is an important part of your day.

Kids are required to write their names on every paper they work on, but they don't always know how to, or they don't have good penmanship skills.

Although I've known that I need to take extra time with my students on these skills, I've always struggled to create Name Writing Practice sheets for each student. You know what I mean... We all have a to-do list that wraps around the corner. Between lesson plans, meetings, and papers to grade there is very little time left for anything else!

At first, I used to write each name by hand, then take the sheets to the copying machine...

More recently, I came across websites and freebies that I could use. Those are cool, but it still took time to figure out how to use them. Some didn't have the right font, some cut out the longer names, and some just didn't look right. I ended up spending time that I didn't have, and was left with less than perfect practice sheets.

I know there are many teachers that face that same challenge.
With so many things on our plates, spending time creating a sheet for every single student can be a pain!

So I thought, "What if I created a template and offered to make Name Writing Practice sheets for teachers?"

And so I did!

All you have to do is choose the packet that fit your needs, and paste your class roster right onto the order form.

In 48 hours you have sheets for all of your students! Just like that!

The packet I'm selling comes with a table of contents so you can locate your students names easily, and it has a couple of sheet varieties so you can use some in the beginning of the year, and others towards the end!

The fonts I use have arrows that show the correct letter formation. This provides a visual cue for your students, and allows parents to help their kids at home!

There is a manuscript packet f offered in D'Nelian and Zaner-Bloser comparable fonts. There is also a packet for children who are learning cursive handwriting.

If this is something you'd like to try, check it out at my TpT Store. Go ahead and "Wishlist" it for later if you want to think about it some more. That way, when the time is right you can find it easily!

I really hope you find value in this resource. I look forward to hearing from you!


  1. Do you do cursive name writing practice sheets?

    1. Hi, Kelley! Yes, I do have a cursive name writing option. Each student gets a page with first name only, and another page with their full name. Let me know if you have further questions!
