If you have a child who knows most of her letters but could use some help identifying which uppercase letters correspond to which lowercase letters, this activity is for you.
In the next installment of my 101 Ways to Teach the Alphabet Series I am sharing a printable Uppercase and Lowercase Letter Matching Clip Card activity.
My Uppercase and Lowercase Letter Matching Clip Cards are designed to be used with clothespins. (But if you don’t have clothespins, keep reading because I share other ways to use this printable at the end of the post.)
The idea is for your child to identify the uppercase letter, determine which lowercase letter matches, and then “clip” it using the clothespin.
The use of clothespins adds a fine motor skills dimension to this activity.
To make this activity self-correcting, you can place a little mark on the back of each card to indicate the correct letter. That way children can “clip” the letter, then turn the card over to see if they clipped the correct one.
Each card includes a photograph of a real object beginning with each letter sound to help reinforce the sounds made by each letter.
If you don’t have clothespins, you can have your child place a coin, rock, or other small object on the correct lowercase letter. Or you can have your child use a pencil or crayon to circle the correct letter.
If you laminate the cards, your child can use a dry erase marker and then erase the mark so the cards can be used over and over again.

I just came across your blog on Pinterest and I’m always trying to think of fun ways to teach my daughter her letters. She is finally showing interest, so I’m always in need of new ideas. Your blog is just awesome!
