Are you looking for a hands-on letter recognition activity for your kids? These Alphabet Clip Cards are a fun way for pre-readers to practice learning the ABC’s by matching letters.
Alphabet Clip Cards:
These interactive clip cards are perfect for kids working on their letter knowledge. Matching letters is great for visual discrimination too! There are 3 different sets to easily differentiate and meet the needs of all learners
By squeezing clothespins open and attaching them to the cards, your kids will be developing their fine motor skills, finger muscle strength, and hand and eye coordination. All of these developmental skills are so important for pre-readers and pre-writers!
Getting Ready To Use The Alphabet Clip Cards:
- Capital Letter to Capital Letter Clip Cards
- Lowercase Letter to Lowercase Letter Clip Cards
- Capital Letter to Lowercase Letter Clip Cards
There are 3 sets of letter clip cards included so you can pick which set works best for your kids based on their letter knowledge.
What Else Is Needed:
- White Card Stock or Copy Paper
- Laminator and Laminating Pouches
To prepare this alphabet activity, fill out the form below to get the printables sent to your inbox. After receiving the email, download and print the cards that you need. I like to print my resources on white card stock, because it is more durable. But, you can use copy paper too.
Next, cut the cards apart. If you want your kids to be able to check their answers, mark a dot or put a sticker on the back of the card where the clothespin will be after they clip it.
Then, laminate the cards so your kids can use them over and over and store them in a resealable plastic bag or pencil pouch.
How To Use The Alphabet Clip Cards:
Capital Letter to Capital Letter Matching:
The first set is matching capital letters to capital letters. Kids usually start by learning capital letters so these cards are perfect for young learners who are just being exposed to the alphabet.
Lowercase Letter to Lowercase Letter Matching:
The second set is matching lowercase letters to lowercase letters. After learning the capital letters, children begin to recognize lowercase letters which are usually more difficult to identify.
Capital Letter to Lowercase Letter Matching:
After your kids have learned both capital and lowercase letters, they can start to make the connection between the two and match them together even when they don’t look alike.
Your kids will pick a card and identify the letter on it. They will then find the matching letter and clip a clothespin on it. If you marked the answer on the back of the card, they can flip it over and check to see if they clipped the correct letter.
These Alphabet Clip Cards are a fun, hands-on way for pre-readers to work on letter recognition and their fine motor skills. They can be used as an independent activity for young children in any early childhood classroom or homeschool.
