I was scanning through Pinterest, as I always do, looking for fun ways for the kids to play with their alphabet. I found that several teachers will use clothes pins with the letters on them to work on matching letters. Here is one example of that:
I took this idea and made a few centers that related to themes we were discussing.
These I made for Valentines week. I had the laminated hearts all ready from previous years so it was pretty easy to add letters to the hearts. I have to say that these were not as liked as the Dinos but I still had a few kids show interest in them.
I used the same set of clothes pins for both matching sets. I plan to do more matching sets when the inspiration hits. Right now I am focusing a bit more on Number recognition and counting. We are having a lot of fun with that.
