This resource is aimed at infant/junior pupils or SEN pupils at the beginning of work on literacy. It focuses on the matching of lower case letters to their upper case equivalent and vice versa. There are six discs in the resource which should be cut out and laminated. The first three pages have lower case letters on each segment of the disc for the first exercise. Write the upper case letters of the alphabet on wooden pegs in permanent marker and ask the pupil to place the pegs on the correct segments of the discs.
Similarly, the next three pages have upper case letters on each segment of the disc for the second exercise. Write the lower case letters of the alphabet on wooden pegs in permanent marker and ask the pupil to place the pegs on the correct segments.
This activity is especially suitable for SEN pupils to demonstrate their understanding of equivalent upper and lower case letters. It is also good for fine motor skills in the manipulation of the pegs onto the cards.
We frequently gave activities such as this for homework to our SEN pupils. It gave them the sense that they had homework like everyone else and it also allowed the parents to see what Maths topic we were currently working on.
This activity could also be used as an independent work task completed by a pupil in their work station.
