How to teach your child their name and surname.

Repetition is the key. Stick the name card up where they usually draw, colour or do home-work. Every time they draw a picture or colour in their colouring book, make it a rule that they must write their full name onto their drawing, so everyone knows they did it. Use the laminated name card to practice on. Use the Mother and Father Name card to practice writing mom and dads name as well as their name.

How to teach your child their address:
Step 1: Take your child to the top of your gate, let them look at your house number so they have a visual, explain to them what house numbers are, point out to them that the other houses also have numbers on them. Take a walk down your road, pointing at the house numbers, then take them to your street sign, spell the street name out, explain that the street sign is pointing towards your road. They won’t forget this walk. Say your house number and address so they can put the two together. While you are up there, explain the post box, what is a post box, how letters arrive.

Step 2: Fill in the House picture card with your address and house number. Hang the house picture in your child's room so they see it every day and becomes familiar with it.

Step 3: Let your child write their address onto the envelope Card. Writing down the information may help it stick because they get the repetition along with the visual of the numbers. Explain towns and cities: tell your child a town is a small area where they go to the shops, school, and local areas. Cities are bigger areas and they have their own names. Tell them some places they have been in their city, like a water park, zoo, and that you had to drive a little further than what you would normally do to go to your local shop.

Step 4: Rhyme the address to make it easier to remember. For example, for the address 321 May St., say, "I have fun at 321; I play all day on a street called May." The rhyme doesn't have to make sense as long as it gets your child excited about learning his address.

Just keep practicing writing, singing, rhyming your address and your child will learn it in no time at all. Don’t forget to praise, praise and praise some more.
