To help our daughter, Jenna, learn her name, we incorporated it into a song. We stole the tune for B-I-N-G-O since we were lucky enough to be working with a 5 letter name. It goes like this:
There was a mommy had a baby, Jenna was her name-o. J-E-N-N-A…… OR:
A lucky mommy had a girl and Jenna was her name-o……
Daddy replaces “mommy” with “daddy” as needed. We’ve been singing it to her since she was a baby, and, at 2 y/o, she knows how to spell her name. She still requests the song at bedtime when we sing.
