My son knows how to write all of his letters and numbers, but the sizing, spacing, and smoothness needs a fair amount of improvement. To help him work on handwriting skills in a motivating way, I wanted him to practice writing my son’s favorite word: his name! I created this fun name writing workbook so I could follow along with his handwriting all year.

The plan is simple: starting the first week of September, I will have my son write his name on the appropriate line. He will do this every week until the end of August 2016. I am excited to think about having this workbook as a memento of his young preschool days. I think it will be wonderful to see the progression of his handwriting throughout the year.

I have everything all set for you too. All you need to do is print off the sheets {HERE}.

Each page covers the month titled. Depending on how many weeks are in the month, you’ll see either 4 or 5 lines for them to write their name, along with the week’s date.

Handwriting Workbook

Once you have them printed you can very easily assemble them in whichever way you’d like. A few of my favorite options are:

  • Three-ring binder
  • A hole punch in the upper left hand corner, and a simple ring clip
  • Binding Machine (I am obsessed with mine!!)
    • You can also have a store like staples or office max bind the workbook for you!

A few things I want to tell you – before you get started:

  • Encourage your child to write her name with the first letter capitalized {uppercase}, and the following letters lowercase.
  • Point out the dashed middle line and ask her to keep the lowercase letters below that line.
  • Lastly, have your child work on keeping their letters an appropriate distance from one another. I am not sure about you but I know that my son puts about 4-5 inches between two letters and then practically draws the next two on top of each-other!

  1. I haven’t checked all of the pages but the last page for August has some July dates on the last few.

  2. Also, when I printed the first page, the dashed line in the middle didn’t show up once printed, but shows on the print preview. But otherwise, I love the idea of weekly practice instead of monthly 🙂

    1. Hi Stefanae!

      Thank you so much for letting me know about the error for August 2016! I have corrected the typo. I am so sorry for any inconvenience this has caused.

      Also- I am not sure why the dotted line is not printing for you. It is there in all of the files, and since it shows in your preview I would suggest clearing your cache to see if that fixes it for you.

      Thank you so much!


      1. Thanks so much! I’ll try that! Beautiful pages! I can’t wait to use them with my students this year in our first year of homeschool preschool! Thank you for sharing!!! 🙂

  3. Hi! I really love this.. thank you for making it! I was wondering if you have a version that doesn’t already have the dates filled in. Please let me know 🙂 I am so glad I pinned this!

  4. These are great! Do you have an updated version with 2016-2017 dates on them or just blank. I love these! Thank you!

  5. I am also interest in a version for the 2016-2017 school year dates on them. Perhaps even an editable version would be great so changes can be made year to year. Thanks so much!

  6. Love this idea. Would also love to do this for 2016/17.. generic months without the dates would be super. I haven’t tried to print these yet- but maybe the dates could just be blacked out.

  7. I also am interested in the 2016-2017 ones! I printed them and realized they don’t add up with this year!

  8. Do have up-to-date calendars for SY2017-2018 you’re willing to share?

      1. Hello Ceci,
        I am so sorry- at this time we do not have an updated version of this name writing workbook. We will add it to the wishlist to update.
        I am sorry for the inconvenience.

  9. This is awesome. Is there a version without dates or dates for the 22-23 school year?
