I just love the fact that C, my son, is becoming such a sponge! Although we are not doing anything intentional per say and he is mainly learning through play, what he has managed to soak up astounds me. Why do I say this? I found out that my son, whom I have never done any preschool letter activities with, knows the letters of the alphabet (not simply singing the abc song) and points them out when asked. He even knows most of the preschool letter upper cases with their corresponding lower cases! Can you tell I am excited?
As a result of wanting to maintain his laid- back-play- when- he- feels- like attitude, I made him a few teddy bear preschool letter cards. These can also be used with any child brushing up on their cases.
How To Prepare
FIRST print the pages (you can pull of printing on both sides if you use cardstock paper)
SECOND laminate if you want to make them even more durable.
THIRD cut out the cards and create 2 stack: upper case and lower case
How To Play
If your child is just learning to match cases, then start with 3 letter cards at a time. This means work on letters A,B,C or M,A,T whatever order you decide.
Place either the lower cases facing up or the upper cases facing up.
Give your preschooler the matching cards and ask them to match the cases.
