Magnetic Letter Match Activity

After using the Magnetic Letter Sensory Bin to work on learning the ABC’s, your kids can practice matching letters using this Magnetic Letter Match Activity! It’s a fun, hands-on way for pre-readers to identify letters, explore their shapes, and build visual discrimination skills.

Magnetic Letter Match Activity:

Magnetic letters are one of my favorite manipulatives to use in my classroom and homeschool! You can use them in your letter, phonics, and sight word activities – just to name a few. For this letter recognition activity, I used the red and blue magnetic letters but you can use any set that you have on hand. If you don’t have magnetic letters, you can learn how to make magnetic letters using free printable letter cards and a few supplies.

Along with the magnetic letters, you will need a magnetic board or cookie sheet for this activity. I use the small cookie sheets from the Dollar Tree. They are easy for preschoolers to use and the perfect size for the letter matching cards.

What’s Included:

  • 7 Magnetic Letter Match Cards


What Else Is Needed:

  • White Card Stock or Copy Paper
  • Scissors
  • Magnetic Letters
  • Magnetic Board or Cookie Sheet


Magnetic Letters


To prepare this magnetic letter activity, click on the button below. Then, download and print the letter matching cards. I like to print my resources on white card stock because it is more durable. But, you can use copy paper too. Next, cut the cards apart. (There are two per page.) Each card has four letters on it except for one which only has two letters.


How To Use The Magnetic Letter Match Activity:

To begin this magnetic letter activity, your kids will pick a card and place it on a magnetic board or cookie sheet. Next, they will identify the first letter in the box and find the matching magnetic letter. Your children will then place it in the other box so they make a match with the letter on the card and the magnetic letter. Finally, your kids will continue to match the other letters on the card and the magnetic letters. 


Ways to Use Magnetic Letters


This interactive resource can be used as an independent activity for young children in any early childhood classroom or homeschool. To differentiate it for your students, have them match the lowercase letters on the cards with capital letter magnets.
