Matching Uppercase and Lowercase Letters

Tiffany knows how to write her name using uppercase letters but not with lowercase.  I was almost certain that she could identify lowercase but to be sure I decided to put together this simple activity.

Here's what  I came up with:



Supplies used:
Uppercase foam alphabet letters
Contact paper
Construction paper
Marker
Painters tape

I taped the contact paper to the wall but you could attach it to anything such as an easel, table, etc.  Next, I stuck the foam letters to the contact paper and finally cut the construction paper into squares and wrote the lowercase letters onto them and added them to a bowl.  My daughter picked out a letter randomly which I liked because I did not want her to go in order of the alphabet.



After picking a lowercase letter Tiffany had to find the matching uppercase letter and stick it to the contact paper.


Happy face while playing our matching game!  


And I am a proud Mommy, Tiffany matched every letter correctly!!

To top it off once finished she asked to play again!!

  1. I love this. We Have switched to working with just lowercase letters lately, but I have not combined the two yet. I think will soon though, just to see if she knows they're the same. We're going to be playing your game.

    1. Natasha, I would like for my daughter to focus more on lower case. I am glad she can tell the difference but she's writing in upper case only (her name) and I'd like her to start writing it in lowercase. Let me know how the game works for ya!!

  2. Great idea! I need to do this as well. We have primarily been working on Upper case and this would be good to combine both.
