Polar Bear Letter Match Activity:
Using interactive activities is not only an engaging way for your kids to learn concepts such as letter recognition. But, it’s also a great activity for developing fine motor skills, hand and eye coordination, and much more.
What Is Letter Recognition?
Letter recognition is the ability to recognize and name all of the lowercase and capital letters. Kids who can recognize the letters of the alphabet can distinguish between them too.

- 26 Polar Bear Lowercase Letter Cards

What Else Is Needed:
- White Card Stock or Copy Paper
- Laminator and Laminating Pouches
- Velcro (Optional)
To prepare this letter recognition activity, click on the pencil below to download and print the polar bear and iceberg letter cards. I like to print my resources on white card stock because it is more durable. But, you can use white copy paper too.
Next, laminate the cards for extra durability and so your kids can use this activity over and over. Finally, cut all of the pieces apart.
As an option, you can attach a Velcro dot to the back of each polar bear and then put the other half of the dot on the iceberg so you preschoolers can easily put the cards together.
How To Do The Polar Bear Letter Match Activity:
To begin this letter recognition activity, your preschoolers will pick a polar bear card and identify the lowercase letter on it. They will then find the iceberg card with the matching capital letter and place the polar bear on the iceberg.
If your kids are just learning the ABC’s, start with just a few letters. As their letter knowledge increases, you can add more letter cards every time your preschoolers complete this activity.
This Polar Bear Letter Match Activity is a fun, hands-on way for your preschoolers to practice matching capital and lowercase letters.
