Upper & Lower

What letters do children know?

  • Directions

    1. As children learn to differentiate between upper-case and lower-case letters, matching letter shapes is a challenge. Provide students with daily experiences that engage them with print through reading activities, singing, writing simple words and their first names, etc.
    2. To make letter cards, ask students to use Crayola® Crayons to write all upper-case and lower-case letters of the alphabet on index cards. This will require a total of 52 index cards, two of reach letter. Encourage students to make each letter large and dark so that they are easily visible.
    3. Divide cards into three piles: Aa through Hh; Ii through Qq, and Rr through Zz.
    4. To play Upper & Lower: Play with two or three friends. Mix the cards from any one pile. Place them face down in rows.
    5. Each player in turn chooses two cards. If the cards match upper- and lower-case letters, keep the cards and take another turn. If the letters are different, turn the cards face down for the next player’s turn.
    6. Start again when all cards are matched.
