For as long as I can remember, my oldest child has had a bit of an obsession with frogs.
He absolutely loves everything about them and could spend hours watching and trying to catch them while playing outside.
Recently, our 2nd child has joined him in this obsession. Most likely because she wants to be just like her big brother, but nevertheless, I decided to use this to my advantage while we are working on learning the letters of the alphabet.
This adorable frog and lily pad letter matching activity was the perfect way to incorporate something that she’s loving right now into our daily learning!
Frog Letter Matching
If you have a little one that is also obsessed with these hopping, fly eating creatures, they’re going to love this simple matching activity.
The download itself includes 26 pages of frogs and matching lily pads.
3 Levels of Learning
You’ll find a set of uppercase letter frogs, lowercase letter frogs, and the same two sets in lily pads.
This was done intentionally so that you could use the activity in three different ways if you’d like to.
To start, if your child is just beginning to learn the letters of the alphabet, stick with the uppercase letters.
Have them match the uppercase letter on each frog to the matching uppercase letter on the lily pads.
If they’re ready to move on a bit and have started learning the lowercase letters of the alphabet, you can complete the activity again, matching the lowercase letter frogs to the matching lowercase letter lily pads.
Finally, if they’ve learned both the upper and lowercase letters of the alphabet and you’d like to use these for review, have them create matching sets of either an uppercase letter frog to a lowercase letter lily pad or vice versa.
When you’re done for the day, toss them into a plastic bag or pencil box to use again and again. These adorable little creatures make an excellent literacy center!
