Daily Sign In Make Over


It worked but it was not very inviting for the children


 First I changed the name of the area to Name Station.  This area now serves two purposes.  One for the children to sign in daily for practice writing their name and Two it is an area that they can write their name as well of names of their friends with different types of writing instruments and paper. 

I also created three books this year so that the children could move faster through the process of the daily signing in.

Name rings, these rings have the children's first and last names on them for extra practice.  The rings are also dived up into three ring sets that match the sign in books so children are able to find their names as well as their friends.

 Don't forget the alphabet when it comes to writing children always need something to reference.

 The name station also includes a variety of writing instruments, lined paper and plain paper.

Remember this is just a station for them to write names.  I also a full writing center for them the explore making books and drawing pictures.  

What does the inside of your book look like?

Each book has ABC tabs so that the children can go to their first letter in their name and find their name in that section.  Depending on the level of the child their name might have practice writing text on it.  We are using the lettering from Lettering Delights


  1. Can you post a picture of what the inside of the books look like? I'd love to see what template you use. Thanks

  2. I would like to see it as well. Wondering if it is blank pages or if each child has a specific page they use to keep a running record.

  3. This is a great idea! I am always looking for new ways to have the children practice their names.

  4. Where did you find the template with the days of the week next to the name writing area? or did you make it?
