As a child enters the world of reading and writing through letters and phonics. Matching uppercase and lowercase can be really confusing to them especially when it comes to mirror image alphabets like ‘i, j’ or ‘b, d’. So, we tried these easy alphabet matching activities for preschoolers recently and my 3 years old absolutely loved them.
ABC Spider-web Alphabet Matching Activity
To make learning lowercase abc’s fun we made a spiderweb and hide the lowercase alphabets inside the tiny spiders. The child now has to find, recognise the alphabet and match it with the corresponding uppercase letter. You can see the entire activity here on the Instagram post too.
- A magnetic board
- Few markers/brush-pens to make spider webs
- Magnetic alphabets
If you don’t have a magnetic board, worry not. Use a normal white/chalkboard. You may also use Foam letters or make DIY alphabet cut-outs. Isn’t it an easy alphabet matching activity for preschoolers?
For Nursery/Kindergarten kids, you may ask them to draw the corresponding uppercase/lowercase letter too for letter writing practise.
Handwritten – Lowercase matching activity for kids
We made some square cut-outs, with handwritten lowercase alphabets. The lowercase letters are intentionally handwritten to get comfortable with the written form/cursive way of writing. Also, similar letters are written in the same colour to familiarise better. Check the entire activity here on Instagram post.
- Foam/ Magnetic alphabets
- Cardboard box
- Few markers/brush-pens to draw lowercase alphabets
- scissor to cut small squares
You may lay down the lowercase alphabets and ask the child to match the corresponding uppercase or vice-a-versa. Either way, it’s going to be fun.
Similarly, for Nursery/Kindergarten kids, you may ask them to draw the corresponding uppercase/lowercase letters too for some letter writing practice.
