Being able to identify letters is an important building block for learning how to read.
Matching capital and lowercase letters helps children to understand that letter shapes can vary, but the letter still makes the same sound.
Letter recognition is a key component of phonemic awareness, which is the ability to hear and identify individual sounds in words.
By practicing matching capital and lowercase letters, kids will develop their letter recognition skills and lay the foundation for learning to read.

If your students are using the colored worksheet or mat, they can mark the letters by covering them with small manipulatives such as mini erasers.
They will then continue to pick cards and find the letters on the worksheet or mat until they have found them all.
