Whether you’re learning about postal carriers and how the mail system works or you’re just looking for new ideas to add to your post office dramatic play area, this mail letter matching activity is a great way to work on both the upper and lowercase letters of the alphabet while also incorporating colors and fine motor skills into your play at the same time.
It was the perfect way to extend our community helper theme into the math center and this letter matching activity works just as well for the literacy center!
Letter Matching Mail
Just like the math version, this activity includes a set of envelopes and their matching stamps.
The envelopes within this set all include an uppercase letter of the alphabet and all 26 lowercase letters are included on the stamps.
Just print the pages, cut the pieces out, and run them through your laminator if you plan to reuse them.
Now, this activity can be used a number of ways.
If you’re only planning to use the pieces once as a matching activity, simply cut the pieces out and use them as is.
If you’d like to use them for a while or if you’ll have multiple children using them, laminate them for durability and then either have your child go ahead and start matching them or add some Velcro dots to the envelopes and the stamps to add a little more fine motor work to the activity.
Use them in a literacy center or store them in a plastic pencil box to use as a busy box or quiet time activity.
Either way, you’ll quickly work on mastering all 26 letters of the alphabet as you work on matching each of the lowercase letter stamps to their corresponding uppercase letter envelopes.
