Next they will look at the three lowercase letters on the raindrops and find the matching one.

Then, your preschoolers and kindergarteners will clip a clothespin on the card to cover the letter.

If you marked the answer on the back of the card, they can check to see if they clipped the clothespin on the correct spot.

If you don’t have clothespins, your kids can also cover the letters will small manipulatives such as mini erasers or flat glass marbles.

They will continue working through the other cards in the set, identifying and matching the letters.
