  • Spelling or writing? Keep in mind that writing is a physical development milestone. many kids lack the hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills to actually write until they are school age irregardless of how long their name is. Spelling their name? You can help them learn it by make it a song or a game.

    My two both have 5 letter names. They learned to spell them fairly young and the process was aided by making a song out of it. I think I have my DD on video spelling it for us around or just before her 2nd birthday. Writing it? She was 3. It was big oversized capital letters. DS was about the same.
