Learning the alphabet is something we work hard on in early childhood classrooms. Exploring letters and sounds is a huge part of what we do to get ready to become successful readers. We love to add fun alphabet activities into our day, and I am a major fan of clip cards. These alphabet clip cards are perfect for preschool and kindergarten students to work on upper and lowercase letters!
Pair these with our Alphabet Mega Bundle for tons of Alphabet Fun!
Alphabet Clip Cards
Clip cards are a go-to favorite of mine in the classroom because I love the many purposes they serve. You can work on tons of different skills, all while building up fine motor skills too!

Squeezing clothespins is great for little hands to build up the strength in the finger muscles used in fine motor activities such as writing.
I printed off the cards and laminated them (they will last much longer this way). Then I placed them in a basket with clothespins. There are 3 versions of these clip cards, so that you can choose which works best for your kids.
Uppercase to Uppercase Matching
The first set is matching uppercase letters to uppercase letters. Matching same letters is great for visual discrimination and is a great start for young learners who are just being exposed to the alphabet.
Uppercase to Lowercase Matching
After kids have been exposed to both upper and lowercase letters, they can start to discern which ones match, even when they are in different cases.
The upper to lowercase matching cards are great for more of a challenge and to check if kids know both upper and lowercase letters.

Lowercase to Lowercase Matching
Another variation on working on letter recognition and visual discrimination is to match lowercase letters to one another.
There are truly options for each learner, and I love using all 3 sets in my own classroom!
