Getting ready to go back to school includes so much prep, no matter if you are a parent or a teacher. Buying school supplies for my kids and myself is no easy task, but I always find it so much fun! My oldest loves school supplies as much as I do, and using a brand new pink eraser for the first time may be one of her favorite things. Putting together erasers and pencils in this Pencil Alphabet Match seemed to make sense as the school year begins.
Pencil and Eraser Alphabet Match
This low prep uppercase and lowercase alphabet match activity includes 26 pencil cards and 26 eraser cards. Each pencil card has an uppercase letter on it. Each eraser card has a lowercase letter on it.
To play, start by picking a pencil card out of the basket. Identify the letter on the pencil card. Find the eraser card that has the matching lowercase letter on it and place it on the pencil card.
The object is to match up each of the pencil cards and eraser cards together correctly.
Sometimes, printable games like this are easier to set up across a table. Spread the uppercase pencil cards out all over the table. If I were setting it up, the cards would be in alphabetical order. This way, finding a certain letter may be easier for younger learners if they are set up in order.
Now that the pencils are all in view, pick an eraser card out one by one. Match each eraser until the basket is empty.
Some of the letters tend to be tricky when first starting to master uppercase and lowercase letters. To make this activity self-correcting, write the lowercase matching letter in pencil on the back of the pencil cards. This will lessen frustration for those who have are still working hard on mastering lowercase letters.
