Inside: Looking for a fun way to work on alphabet skills with a fish theme? This fish alphabet printable activity includes free cards that challenge preschoolers to match the uppercase letter to the lowercase letter.
There are so many fun ways to work on letter identification throughout the year, and today I’m sharing an alphabet matching activity that is perfect during an ocean or pet theme, or any time of the year.
All you need is the free printable fish cards and your preschoolers will be ready for some upper and lower case matching.
Fish Alphabet Printable Activity
This fish alphabet matching activity can be adapted depending on the level your children are at.
Scroll down towards bottom of this page to find the link to download your free copy.
For children who are just beginning to recognize their letters, you will want to make 2 copies of the fish alphabet matching cards.
With the first set, cut on the outer dotted lines (not the center line) so that you have individual cards that show both the upper and lower case letter.
With the second set, do the same thing and also cut the dotted center line. (So that the upper and lower case are separate cards.)
You can also keep an entire page intact and put the matching cards in a container.
For those that can already recognize upper and lowercase letters, only make a copy of 1 set.
Cut on all of the dotted lines so that you have 2 cards for each letter, one being upper case and the other lower.
Place the cards in a container and invite your preschoolers to match them.
Note: When just starting this activity, don’t put the entire set out. Pick and choose which letters to use at one time.
