ABC Uppercase and Lowercase Letters Matching Game

The girls' preschool teacher mentioned that they needed more practice differentiating between the capital and lowercase letters, so I made this fun matching game for our family to play together.

Here's how to get the game ready:

  • Print out the letter sheets and cut the letters apart.
  • Cut out squares from two different patterned papers.
  • Use double stick tape to tape the lowercase letters to one paper design and the capital letters to the other paper design.
  • Lay all the cards face down in rows.
  • On the player's turn, turn over two cards-one of each design.
  • If the cards are a capital and lowercase match, keep the pair and take an extra turn.
  • If the cards are not a match, turn the cards back over and turn goes to next player.

This great Chrissie! Here's a message from my son, "Mom, tell her that I'm gonna be so excited to play this game and the monkey number game! Does this game have monkeys too, cuz I like the monkeys?"

Thanks!

Once again, a great idea.
I think I will go ahead and make these and save them to use once my girls know ALL their letters.

You could start matching with the letters she feels comfortable with, and add in one or two new letters each time.

This is too much - I was just thinking last night about sending you a line and asking if you had a version of the monkey game using Alphabet. Now - I just have to ask for shapes and colors! JOKING!

These are great - just love this idea and the monkey game!

Chrissie, I've been wondering, what does the Stumble It icon mean at the end of your posts?

Chrissy said...

Great idea...my little girl is starting to learn her lower-case letters, too, so I definitely see this game in our future! I'll be linking over from my place!
