Are your kids having fun learning the ABC’s with the Building Blocks Lowercase Letter Cards? To differentiate that activity, we created a set of Building Blocks Capital Letter Cards for pre-readers who are learning capital or uppercase letters.
Building Blocks Capital Letter Cards:
Constructing the letters of the alphabet using building blocks is a hands-on way for your kids to practice letter recognition and formation. It’s also a great activity for developing their fine motor skills, finger muscle strength, hand and eye coordination, and much more.
These skills are so important for pre-readers and pre-writers who are learning everything from how to hold a book to pencil grip.
What Is Letter Recognition?
Letter recognition is is the ability to recognize and name all of the lowercase and capital letters. Children who can recognize the letters of the alphabet can also distinguish between them 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 resealable bag like a pencil pouch.
How To Use The Building Blocks Capital Letter 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 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!
