Ways to Use the Alphabet Clip Cards

I like to place the alphabet clip cards in a grab bag or basket to make the activity more engaging. Children reach in and grab out a letter card. They name the uppercase letter and clip the lowercase letter that matches.

Don’t want to use clothespins? No worries! Laminate the cards and children can use dry erase markers to circle the correct letter instead of clothespins.

If you prefer not to laminate the clip cards you can have kiddos place a sticker on the correct letter. You might even try giving your students BINGO Daubers and have them dab the correct lowercase letter.

For partner work, I’ve had kiddos work in pairs where they each take turns grabbing a clip card and saying the letter name. Their partner can check their work by helping them if needed. Take turns grabbing letters until all the alphabet clip cards have been clipped.

  1. I tried to print the pages but the penguins printed out on solid black rectangles. Any ideas? I printed from my iPad.
