With the winter bearing down on us and the colder temperatures hanging around, Spring feels like it’s a million months away. In reality, though, it’s just around the corner and this springtime alphabet matching file folder game is the perfect way to embrace the coming of the season!
The thing I love most about Spring is the color.
Once the season is in full swing, there is color everywhere. The gray dreariness of winter is replaced by pops of vibrant colors wherever you look, mostly in the form of flowers, and that is exactly what today’s file folder game is all about!
Springtime Letter Matching
Now yes, we did have another letter matching game earlier this month. This one, however, is a little bit different.
While our groundhog alphabet matching game helped your child practice matching upper and lowercase letters, this game is perfect for younger children that aren’t quite ready for that.
You’ll actually find two different options within this printable set. The first allows your child to work on matching letters that look the same (matching two of the same uppercase letters), the second allows your child to practice matching upper and lowercase versions of each letter should they be ready for that.
You’ll start as you always do, by attaching the cover to the front of your folder using clear contact paper.
Next, you’ll add those vibrant pops of color known as flowers.
Just cut out the uppercase letter flowers and attach them to the inside of your folder using some more contact paper.
Finally, come the bees. It just wouldn’t be Spring without a few of them.
Decide which set that you want to use, there is an uppercase set and a lowercase set included and cut them out. You’ll probably want to laminate these for durability, especially if you’re using them with younger children.
When your pieces are ready, have your child match the letters on the bees to the letters on the flowers.
You can use Velcro dots to give them something to stick them to, however, with full alphabet games like this, I often find it easier to simply have them match each on by laying it on top. It makes it much easier to wipe them all off the folder when they’re done.
Start with matching uppercase letters if necessary and then move your way up to lowercase. They’ll be letter matching pros in no time!
