Identify and practice letter recognition and beginning sounds with this butterfly-themed matching activity.
This activity provides a great, hands-on way to practice phonemic awareness within your butterfly-themed unit study.
Preparing the Activity
Print and laminate the pages. Cut apart all of the cards. This set includes 1 jar and 2 butterflies per letter.
Completing the Activity
Children will identify the letter on the bug jar. Then, they’ll find two butterflies that begin with the featured letter sound (except “X” which features an x-ray and a box).
You can make this a self-correcting activity by placing matching stickers on the back of each set.
