It’s National Pick Strawberries Day! Celebrate and work on learning the ABC’s with this Strawberry Letter Recognition Activity! For even more fun, add the strawberries to a sensory bin so your kids can “pick” the berries.
Strawberry Letter Recognition Activity:
This alphabet activity is a hands-on way for pre-readers to practice identifying capital and lowercase letters. Depending on your children’s letter knowledge, you can mix the capital and lowercase strawberries together and have them work on both.
You can also have your kids practice letter sounds. It’s so easy to differentiate this activity to meet the needs of all your learners!
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 distinguish between them too.
Using hands-on activities like this one is a fun way for kids to practice identifying capital and lowercase letters!

- Green Shredded Paper
To prepare this alphabet activity, click on the button below and fill out the form. Then, download and print the strawberries and the recording sheet that you want to use. 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 strawberries so your kids can reuse this activity and cut them out. To set-up the sensory bin, fill a plastic container with green shredded paper. Then, put the strawberries in the shredded paper.
How To Use The Strawberry Letter Recognition Activity:
Your kids will “pick” a strawberry out of the grass and identify the letter on it. If you are using the lowercase or capital letter recording sheets, they will then color the letter they picked using dot markers or crayons.
If you are using the recording sheet with the blank strawberries, your kids will write the letter on the berry.
This Strawberry Letter Recognition Activity is a fun, hands-on way for pre-readers to practice identifying lowercase and capital letters. Through this sensory activity, they will also work on developing their fine motor skills too.
