Earlier this week one of my library families stated that her children were having trouble with the alphabet, particularly recognizing the letters uppercase and lower case.
We spoke a bit more and I thought for the please touch discovery stations we feature at my library the focus would be on alphabets.
This station has a total of four activities but for this post I am going to focus of the Alphabet Bottle Cap Match game.
Alphabet Bottle Cap Match:This idea was featured on the blog Learning 4 Kids.
For our version we found letters from the dollar store, used the bottle caps we have been collecting and construction paper.
To make the circles we used the bottle caps to trace them and wrote in lowercase letters.
We hot glued the uppercase letters to the bottle caps and used the rules from Learning 4 Kids for our game.
Below is a copy of the instructions we used.

After assembling all of the pieces this station took no more than an hour to put together.
It has provided hours of fun for my library kids and can be easily replicated with materials that can be found throughout the house.
