Together, they created a large-scale outdoor public art gallery! To a child, there is nothing more important than his or her own name. Using student names to teach letter recognition is a very powerful teaching tool. Names are very meaningful to children, therefore they are eager to learn to identify the letters in their own names first; it is very empowering and motivating for them. A child who is motivated and feels empowered about his or her own learning is going to learn more quickly and retain more than a child who is not.
