Moose & Muffin Letter Recognition Activity:
Book-inspired activities like this one are a great way to extend story time and use our favorite books to make learning fun!
You can easily differentiate this resource for your young learners. Your students can work on just identifying the capital or lowercase letters.
As their letter knowledge increases, you can mix the capital and lowercase muffins together and have them work on both. You can also have your pre-readers practice letter sounds.
What Is Letter Recognition?
Letter recognition is the ability to recognize and name all of the lowercase and capital letters.
Young learners who can identify the letters of the alphabet can distinguish between them too. Using hands-on activities are an entertaining way for pre-readers to practice learning the ABC’s!

To prepare this alphabet activity, click on the button below and fill out the form. Then, 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 the moose and muffins, so your kids can use them over and over. Then, cut the pieces apart. Finally, tape or glue the moose on a paper bag or cardboard box (such as a small tissue box) and cut the mouth out.
How To Use The Moose & Muffin Letter Recognition Activity:
After reading the book If You Give A Moose A Muffin by Laura Numeroff, your pre-readers will pick a muffin and identify the capital or lowercase letter on it as they feed the moose.
If your preschoolers are just starting to learn the names of the letters, start with just a few muffins. You can then add more letters as their letter knowledge increases.
When your kids know all of the letter names, they can practice saying the sound that each letter makes as they feed the moose.
This book-inspired Moose & Muffin Letter Recognition Activity is a fun way for pre-readers to practice identifying capital and lowercase letters!
