Today I’m showing you a fun felt tray activity you can use for learning! Actually, you can use this setup in different ways, only changing up one or two things! Keep on reading to see what I mean…
We used it as a fun mitten matching and memory activity for my child that started to recognize upper and lower case letters!
You will need:
I used the letters my daughter(5.5yrs) are familiar with. It is the beginning letters of all the cousins names(you can use any letters). I wrote the lower case and upper case letters on the stickers. Then placed it face down on the tray.
Young children need to understand that even though the upper and lower case letters sometimes look different, it’s still the same sound. The “big” letters are used for the start of a name. That was the idea with this activity.
She played memory game with the mittens: looking for the matching upper and lower case letters.
This game is great for visual discrimination and memory skills too! Introduce new letters or revise the whole alphabet.
