Alphabet matching

Many kids enjoy using stickers. With this in mind, I created an activity of alphabet recognition by matching alphabet stickers to 'bubbles' in the paper sheet. This activity is able to create kid's fine motor skills as well.

What you need:

1. Alphabet bubble sheet (print here)
2. Alphabet stickers

Step by step:

Print out the alphabet bubble sheet here. You may ask your child to colour the bubbles.

Then read out and alphabet and ask your child to find the alphabet. Once they found it, ask your child to peel off the letter respectively and place it over top of the letter on the bubble. At the same time, you may introduce them with objects that starts with that letter.

Repeat this for all letters.

You can modify the activity by matching uppercase letters with lower case letters.
