Handwriting practice, handwriting worksheets.

These are the latest versions of the handwriting worksheets. They have been rewritten to use sweeping lines instead of static fonts. This results in natural curves that match how cursive lines are actually written. Some additional formats and features will be added as we continue development. Please let us know if you have any issues using them.

Name Tracing Practice - Original

Kids all learn at different paces, but one of the best ways to start with writing is having your child practice their name. Not only is it an important early skill that they’ll use, it’s also something that they’ll want to practice. But, names can be so diverse! That’s why I’ve created this free editable name tracing worksheet printable so your child can practice writing their name.

New name tracing worksheets available:

  • Name Tracing Practice Pack
  • Seasonal Name Tracing Practice

Free Editable Name Tracing Worksheet Practice Printable

Most children don’t need to be able to write well by the time they enter kindergarten but even preschool classes work on teaching name recognition. That includes both identifying and writing a child’s name.

When preschoolers are first learning name writing it’s important to make things really simple for them. Personally, I love to use name tracing worksheets to help develop those early writing skills. 

Why Use a Name Tracing Worksheet Generator?

Did you know that there are over five thousand popular first names in the US alone? That’s an awful lot of variation even if your child doesn’t have a super unique name. It would be impossible to create tracing name worksheets for each and every name like we do with other early words.

That’s where this name tracing worksheet generator works great. You can customize it with your child’s exact name (both first and last!) even if you use unique spelling. 

This writing worksheet generator replaces blank name tracing worksheets because you can finally customize them to say anything you want!

How to Use Name Tracing Worksheets

These free name tracing worksheets for preschool are perfect for developing those beginner writing skills in kids. All you have to do is insert your child’s name and how many times you’d like the name repeated.

When you’re working with young children start with less repetitions. Too many can be overwhelming, plus the larger words are easier to trace for little ones. Then as they gain confidence in their writing you can make the letters smaller and include more lines.

You could start with your kid’s first name, then move on to including the middle and last name. Or have them practice names of family members and friends!

What Font Should I Use For Name Tracing?

I love this name tracing generator because you can choose from multiple fonts. Which font you go with depends on your child’s age, abilities, preferences, and your learning goals. 

It’s popular for parents, especially when doing preschool and kindergarten age name writing practice, to opt for dotted letters that can be traced over. Writing formation guides are optional and it really depends on the kid. Try experimenting with different font styles and see what works best for you. 

Printable names in bubble letters are great for beginners or if you’re doing other crafts with their name. To turn the name writing worksheet into a custom name craft just enter the name with one repetition with the paper set to landscape.

You can also use this free name writing generator to help kids practice handwriting their name. A lot of schools are starting with cursive instead of printing. If that’s something you want to work on at home choose the cursive font when creating your printable. 

Why Should Kids Learn to Write Their Name?

I usually recommend starting early with name writing because it’s something most kids will find useful even from a young age. Unlike other words, preschoolers have plenty of reasons to write their names.

With name writing practice kids will be able to label their own artwork, sign their name on cards (Valentine’s Day is a great opportunity to practice name writing!), and it helps with general word recognition.

Since it’s more practical than other words it’s easier to keep preschoolers focused when practicing name writing. They’ll still develop important pre-writing skills like muscle strength, pencil grip, and letter formation while also getting to write something that relates to their life.

Finally, most preschoolers can identify their name. It can be challenging to convince pre-readers to write words they can’t yet read.

How to Make Name Writing Practice More Fun 

Even enthusiastic kids can get burnt out on name tracing worksheets. It’s really important to make sure kids have fun while developing preschool skills. If something is too boring you might start getting resistance in the future when the pressure is higher to teach these early skills.

My best advice is to allow the child to lead in your learning. What that means is providing tracing name worksheets and encouraging kids to do them without being forceful. If they’re completely uninterested, pause and try again at a different time or when they’re older.

Another great way to make things fun is by turning the activity into something more than just writing practice. For younger children you could use the bubble letter font to create a colouring page. Then have them decorate their name however they want. 

I’ve also created activities for my kids by painting the letters of their names and decorating them with stickers . These are both great for kids of all ages! Pre-writers will practice letter recognition and older kids can get creative. 

For older children who need to practice their writing skills try changing out the names with other things they find interesting like TV show characters or friends’ names.

Can You Use These Free Name Tracing Worksheets With Older Kids?

Writing practice isn’t just for preschoolers and kindergarten students. Even older kids can benefit, especially if they’re learning cursive. 

You can also use these writing practice printables to practice spelling. Just insert the spelling words and have your older kids trace over them on the worksheet. To encourage concentration on each letter you can have them alternate what colours they use to write. 

Writing practice worksheets are also a great way to practice spelling and vocabulary in a second language at any age.

How Can You Make Your Own Name Writing Printables?

The printable name tracing worksheets generator is completely free and available on the Create Printables website. You can use it to create your own name writing paper in guided printing, handwriting/cursive writing, bubble letters, and more. 

They’re perfect for your preschool aged kids, kindergarten writing practice, homeschool families, and even working on writing skills with older children.
