Flower Find and Color the Letters
This flower find and color activity comes with two pages – an uppercase letters page and a lowercase letters page. Then there are 3 types of cards – lowercase letters, uppercase letters and beginning sounds pics.
It is perfect for kids who are learning letter identification or letter sounds. You can use it to teach lowercase letters, uppercase letters or a combination of both. All you need to do is mix and match the color pages with the different cards I’ve created.
You have kids that don’t like to color?
No problem! Try slipping the pages into write and wipe pockets and letting them use dry-erase markers to color. Or skip the coloring and just let them cover the letter with a manipulative – like buttons, pom poms or snap cubes.
As you can tell, there are lots of ways to use this simple activity and differentiate it for the kids you are teaching.
Setting Up the Activity
- Printable Find and Color the Letter Pages and Cards (button to download at the bottom of this post)
- Scissors – to cut out the cards
This activity requires very little prep. Just print the pages and cut out the cards. The cards can be laminated and used again and again for other versions of these find and color pages.
I hope this saves you lots of time!
Doing the Flower Find and Color Activity
To start, kids will draw a card from the pile. They will look at it and determine which letter they need to locate on the coloring sheet.
Then they will find the letter on the sheet and color it in (or cover it up).
This continues until all of the flowers are colored.
Because of the simple and easy to follow steps, many kids will be able to do this independently – which makes it perfect for your literacy centers or for independent morning work. Especially when you consider the fact that it can be differentiated for lots of different levels and abilities and can be modified for kids who don’t like coloring.
I hope the kids enjoy it!
