Letter identification is one of the first steps in literacy instruction. Once children are able to identify and name letters, they can begin learning the sounds that they make and then can begin assembling and reading words.
When teaching letter identification, include activities that help children recognize both uppercase and lowercase letters, as recognition of both sets of letters is necessary for literacy development. There are so many fun ways to reinforce your child’s learning of the alphabet and letters, upper and lower case,
Here is what i did to help my son to recognize both uppercase and lowercase letters. We have done this many times but he never gets bored of it and keeps asking to do this over and over again!
Ask your child to match the lowercase letters to the capital letters,. You can use two sets of alphabet letters, one upper and one lower. take out 4 or 5 letters in the beginning. let your child match the capitals and lower case letters as many letter as your child can do. I used alphabet cards for lower case letters and magnetic alphabet for capitals.
Alphabet match is a fun hands-on activity for kids to help recognise and learn their alphabet letters. It is also a great opportunity to introduce upper case and lower case letters and match them in a fun puzzle like activity.!!!
