If you laminate them, students can cover their spaces with a dry-erase marker, wipe them off, and the next child can use them.

Differentiating the Alphabet Letter Recognition Activity

Students will take an alphabet task card and look at the uppercase and lowercase letters at the top of the card on the gumdrop.

Then, they will try to find uppercase and lowercase versions of that letter around the card. Each card has two uppercase versions of the letter and two lowercase versions. So, students will need to cover four letters per card.

You can differentiate this activity by choosing letters your students are learning or letters they already know. You can also choose the number of letters your students will work on at a time.
