Recognizing uppercase/lowercase letters that belong together is important. It is a key oint in reading. I have a few activities for this specific type of letter recognition but I don't do it often enough.
Little Dragon recently received a flyer from his out of home preschool showing what he needs to know for Kindergarten and capital/lowercase was listed. I knew I hadn't worked on this often so I made sure to implement it in this weeks lessons.
This week was Easter week so we did the letter matching using plastic eggs. They are there and I was trying to find as many ways to use them as possible. I also didn't have to dig through my past preschool things to find other matching activities. This was right in front of me.
We grabbed the egg bin and I wrote the alphabet on the white board.
Doll Dragon joined in this activity so I wanted to make it a tad more challenging and figured Little Dragon would be able to keep up with her (knowing she would help him out of habit) so I jumbled the lowercase alphabet
The Dragons took turns matching letters I called out. I know the letters Little Dragon has been struggling with so calling them out to each dragon made sure he was practicing what he needed.
To my great relief Little Dragon did a wonderful job at this activity. He even helped Doll Dragon with a few letters.
I was a harder on myself then I needed to be.
