Learning at Home

My Name, My Story

You Will Need:

Tape or video recorder, or paper and pen

Directions:

Talk with your child about the derivation of her name, why it was chosen, who she was named after (if anyone), and the name’s value and significance to you as a parent. Talk with your parents, aunts, or uncles about why your own name was chosen and share that information with your child, too. Document this discussion in the form of a story or dictated conversation.

Tip:

Recording your conversations, either on tape or video will forever preserve these memories. Your child will treasure your voice forever. Play this tape at night every so often like a bedtime story and make it available to grandparents or babysitters when you aren’t there.
