This letter recognition activity can be used as an independent resource in any early elementary classroom or homeschool.

It’s also a great activity for developing their fine motor skills, finger muscle strength, hand and eye coordination, and much more.

I like to print my resources on white card stock, because it is more durable. But, you can use copy paper too.
Next, laminate the cards so your kids can reuse this activity and cut them apart.
You can store the cards and building blocks in a plastic container such as a pencil box or a resealable bag like a pencil pouch.
How to Use the Capital Letter Formation Cards:
To begin using this activity, your kids will select a card and identify the capital letter on it.
Next, they will build that using building blocks. They can build the letter directly on the card or on a base plate.
Your kids will then look at the three pictures below the letter and find the one that begins with that letter sounds.
They can cover the picture using a building block or another manipulative such as a mini eraser, pom pom, or play dough.
For even more fine motor fun, your kids can use a clothespin and clip it on the card to cover the picture.
These Building Blocks Capital Letter Cards are a hands-on way for your kids to work on letter recognition, beginning sounds, fine motor skills, and much more!
