If your child needs some practice matching uppercase and lowercase letters, this pretty spring butterflies alphabet match game will help!
How to Prepare
- Download the Spring Butterflies Alphabet Match printable HERE.
- Print out the pages.
- Cut apart the butterflies
- Then cut each butterfly in half on the line.
- To make the cards more long lasting print onto card instead of copy paper, or laminate them.
How to Play Alphabet Match
- Read your child’s favourite book together then ask them to point out big letters (capitals) and little letters.
- Talk about where in the sentence the big letters are. Is there a pattern?
- Let your child play with the alphabet match cards to see if they can recognise the difference between uppercase and lowercase letters.
- Then ask them to match the cards correctly. Just start by giving them a few pairs of cards till they’re confident.
- Ask them to say the letter sound AND the name of the letter out loud as they work. For example, the letter sound might be ‘fffff’ but the letter name is ‘eff’.
- Ask them about the object on the butterfly’s tummy. Can they name it? Does it start with the same letter?
- Can they think of other words that start with the same letter?
