Fire pup to the rescue! Help the fire pup put out the fire by matching the capital and lowercase letters in the Firefighter Letter Matching Activity.
This simple activity is a fun way for your kids to practice learning the ABC’s during fire safety week or your community helpers unit.
As they clip the clothespins on the cards, your preschoolers and kindergarteners will also work on developing their fine motor skills.
Being able to identify letters by their shapes is an important building block for learning how to read.
With activities like this one, your kids will learn that some capital letters look similar but many are very different than the lowercase letters.
By practicing matching capital and lowercase letters, your students will develop their letter recognition and other pre-reading skills.

How to Use the Firefighter Matching Letters Activity:
For this firefighter literacy activity, your young learners will select a card and identify the capital letter on it.
Next, they will look at the lowercase letters on the fires and find the one that matches the capital letter.
Your preschoolers and kindergartners will then clip a clothespin on the lowercase letter.
If you marked the answer on the back of the card, your children can flip it over and check to see if they clipped the clothespin on the correct spot.
Your students will continue matching and clipping the letters until they help the fire pup put out all the fires.
