Are you serious? He is 2!!!! They do not have that ability as yet. He might draw lines and color sort of but write? Why does he need to be writing at his age. Also pre-k is for older kids not 2 year olds.

2 year old kids aren't supposed to write... and 2 is too young for pre-K. Did you accidentally get his age wrong or are you completely unaware of normal child development?

He is a toddler. Toddlers (and even preschoolers... and even older kids) learn best through play. He's not supposed to want to sit and write or study or concentrate on anything for a significant length of time. If he wants to draw or color... give him crayons and paper to create whatever he wants. You can sit next to him and draw and write letters (like the ones in his name) and if he is interested you can talk to him about them and if he wants he will try and copy you. But that is the extent of how you 'try' and get him to write at his age... you don't.
