Day 75: Learning Their Parents’ Names

Here is another learning activity adapted from our “Home Preschool Curriculum” developed by Fran Wisniewski and Diane Flynn Keith for

Remember, only do these learning activities if they are enjoyable for you and your child. Do not treat this as a “must do” lesson. It’s simply a fun activity that provides an opportunity to learn, while building “readiness skills” for the school or homeschool environment.

~ Learning Their Parents’ Names ~

It is important for your child to know the first and last names of both of their parents. (This is especially helpful in the event you are ever separated, or your child becomes lost.)

  • Tell your child your first and last name (especially if you have a different last name from your child).
  • Write your name on paper and show it to your child. Compare it to their name and point out how they are alike or different.
  • Ask your child if they remember your name from time to time.  For example, ask them if they remember your name while you are driving in the car or standing in line at the post office or bank.
  • Have a “Teddy Bear Tea Party” and ask your child to introduce you by your full name to all of the “guests.”
