This letter matching activity has been a HUGE hit with my preschooler! It’s great for kinesthetic learners or any little one who loves puzzles or matching. And it has really improved her ability to identify uppercase and lowercase letters.
We go through lots of bottled water so I had no trouble coming up with 26 bottle caps. My only wish is that the brand we prefer used white caps. But it actually hasn’t seemed to matter for purposes of the activity.
Simply collect some caps and write the uppercase letters on them, print out your free printable lowercase mat, and go! You can work through it with them, or if you want it to be a more independent activity you can write the lowercase (answer) on the inside of the cap so they can check their own guesses.
This skill is so important as you work on pre-reading skills since almost every letter they read will be lowercase, yet so many products for young children only display uppercase letters. This has made a super-fun addition to our preschool binder. Find out how to put yours together for free here!
