You can store the cards and the links together in a small bag or box.

Ways To Use The Letter Recognition Sort:

For this activity, you kids will select a letter card and identify the capital or lowercase letter on it.

Next, they will sort through the letter cards with different fonts and find matching letters.

When your children find a match, they will connect it to the letter card using a plastic link.

Your students will continue sorting through the cards until they find and connect all six to their letter.

If your preschoolers and kindergarteners are just starting to learn the letters of the alphabet, start with just a few cards.

I am trying to print this activity but when I click on the red button the document opening only has 1 page & it is blank. I have never encountered this problem before with any of your products so I am not sure what I might be doing wrong.
