A great way to start them recognizing their names is to associate it with a color. Like have Johnny be blue (or whatever color) and write his name on blue paper. I have an assigned color for each kid. Their cups and plates are a particular color, so to get them started I put that color on their names too.

Once I feel like they have the color mastered. I take away the color and just put their name on regular paper or everyone on the same color.
