Using interactive activities is not only an engaging way for your kids to learn concepts such as letter recognition. But, it’s also a great activity for developing fine motor skills, hand and eye coordination, and much more.
What Is Letter Recognition?
Letter recognition is the ability to recognize and name all of the lowercase and capital letters. Kids who can recognize the letters of the alphabet can distinguish between them too. Using hands-on activities like this one is a fun way for kids to practice identifying capital and lowercase letters!

What Else Is Needed:
- White Card Stock or Copy Paper

To prepare this letter recognition activity, click on the pencil below to download and print the bird and nest letter cards. I like to print my resources on white card stock because it is more durable. But, you can use white copy paper too.
Next, laminate the cards to use this activity over and over. Finally, cut all of the pieces apart. As an option, you can attach the nests inside of a file folder.
How To Do The Bird & Nest Letter Match Activity:
To begin this letter recognition activity, your preschoolers will pick a bird card and identify the lowercase letter on it. They will then find the nest card with the matching capital letter and place the bird in the nest.
If your kids are just learning the ABC’s, start with just a few letters. As their letter knowledge increases, you can add more letter cards every time your pre-readers complete this activity.
This letter recognition resource can be used as an independent activity for young children in any early childhood classroom or homeschool. If you are a classroom teacher, use it for literacy centers, morning tubs, or as an enrichment activity. For homeschoolers, try strewing this activity or include it in your morning basket or choice tubs.
This Bird & Nest Letter Match Activity is a fun, hands-on way for your preschoolers to practice matching lowercase and capital letters.
