How To Do The Christmas Lights Letter Match Activity:
To begin this letter recognition activity, your preschoolers and kindergarteners will pick a capital letter card and identify the letter on it.
Next, they will sort through the cards to find the matching lowercase letter.
Your kids will then connect the two cards together using the plastic links.
They will continue connecting the letter cards together until they have matched all of the capital and lowercase letters.
If your pre-readers are just starting to learn the letters of the alphabet, you can start with just a few cards and then add more as their letter knowledge increases.
This Christmas Lights Letter Match Activity is a fun, hands-on way for your preschoolers to practice matching capital and lowercase letters and work on developing their fine motor skills!
