Hot Chocolate Letter Recognition Activity:

This interactive activity is a fun way for pre-readers to practice identifying capital and lowercase letters. Depending on your children’s letter knowledge, you can mix capital and lowercase letter marshmallows together and have them work on both. You can also have your kids practice letter sounds. 

 

What Is Letter Recognition?

Letter recognition is the ability to recognize and name all of the lowercase and capital letters. In addition, kids who can recognize the letters of the alphabet can also distinguish between them too. Using hands-on activities is fun for kids who are learning to identify capital and lowercase letters!

Winter Literacy Activity

 

To prepare this alphabet activity, click on the pencil below to download and print the printables. I like to print my resources on white card stock, because it is more durable. But, you can use copy paper too.

 

Next, laminate mug and marshmallows so your kids can use them over and over. Then, cut the pieces apart. Finally, tape or glue the mug on a paper bag or cardboard box (such as a small tissue box) and cut the top out. 

 

How To Use The Hot Chocolate Letter Recognition Activity:

To use this letter recognition activity, your kids will pick a marshmallow and identify the letter on it as they put it into the mug.

 

Alphabet Activity

 

If your children are just starting to learn the names of the letters, start with just a few marshmallows. You can then add a few more letters every time they play.

 

When your kids know all of the letter names, they can practice saying the sound that each letter makes as they put the marshmallows in the mug. It’s easy to differentiate this activity for your kids!
