EARTH DAY Letter Sounds Lower and Upper Case Matching
10 games included that teach:
1-Fine Motor Skills: coloring, cutting and pasting
2-Recognizing lowercase and uppercase letters
3-Matching upper case to lower case
4-Hearing the initial letter sound with pictures
Make several copies of each page so to have multiples of each letter. Laminate and cut out if prefer. You are now prepared for any of the following alphabet games
These cards have uppercase and lowercase letters and pictures for the beginning sounds. Children recognize letters and letter sounds. I have included directions for 10 games.
Introduce a letter to the student and leave it in clear view. Tell them that we are going fishing for “letter”. If prefer add magnets to each card and to the end of a “Pencil Fishing Pole” for them to get the card. Or just pretend – either way they will love it! Have them catch all the “letter”. This can be an assessment tool or a time to practice taking turns.
2-Go Fishing 2. Introduce lower case and upper case and have the student fish for the matching letter in the opposite case.
3-Use your cards from any of the following letters: A, E, H, I, K, L, M, N, T, V, W, X, Y, Z, i, k, l, t, v, w, x, y, z. Have the students use masking tape to make the teacher’s letter of choice. Kids love tape!
4-Lowercase letter recognition is an important part of reading because lowercase letters make up the majority of letters found in print.
5-Ask the student to find all the lower case letters from the pile or as laid out.
6-Have many alphabet letter cards out and have the student copy words that you have displayed. …especially CVC words.
7. Use as flash cards,
8. Use and a memory game with one side printed all the same and the cards laid out in rows.
9. Have the student pick one card (without knowing what it is) at a time going around the group. The first child to make a word shouts out, “Hey Friends, Have you Heard? I have a Word!!”
10. Give each student the letters they need for a word (or their name) and have them put the letters in order.
