One of the areas that we needed to work on with Connor when he entered kindergarten was learning to identify all of his lower case letters. Despite, thinking that we had this covered, this was an area that he needed some reinforcement with.
I found the following resources so very helpful (and fun too) and we came up with a few activities of our own!
Wildflower Ramblings published these awesome Alphabet Lego Cards: http://wildflowerramblings.com/homeschooling/alphabet-lego-cards-lowercase/
Life Over C’s created adorable printable cars for sorting and matching:
Of course there are a bazillion more on Pinterest!
We have been sorting and matching Uppercase and Lowercase with Melissa and Doug’s Magnetic Wooden Letters. Connor even put them in alphabetic order as he made pairs!
Also spread out 52 post-its on the living room floor with upper and lower case letters for Connor to find and match. Using post-its kept the papers from flying around and Connor could then easily stick the pairs onto the door after he had found them.
We were also inspired by a worksheet that had in kindergarten. It was a dot marker activity identifying different lower case letters. We made our own to include all 52 letters to do a matching activity and since it is fall – we used acorns! Download a free printable here: Acorn Upper Case Lower Case Letter Matching
We have been doing all kinds of cool stuff with acorns!
At last progress report he can readily identify 25 lower cares letters – we are working on that tricky j!
