Practice letter recognition and build fine motor skills with these free monster alphabet clip cards. They’re super fun for little ones!
At Halloween time, it’s fun to include monster activities in your preschool plans. The colorful monsters forming each of the letters of the alphabet will engage your little ones in a fun literacy activity for fall.
Add these free preschool printables to your monster-themed activities this October. But, these cute monsters are perfect all year long!
monster alphabet clip cards
These monster alphabet match clip cards are a hands-on way to make letter matching fun for preschoolers.
Print out these clip cards. I suggest printing them on cardstock and laminating them for durability. Then, cut them apart so that you have 26 cards in all. I like to use a paper cutter to cut my cards apart. It’s so much faster than scissors.
Once your cards are prepped, grab some clothespins or paper clips, and you’re all set. Have your preschoolers choose a card and identify the monster letter on it.
Then, they’ll use a clothespin or paper clip to identify the matching uppercase letter. Kids will continue in this manner until they’ve clipped all of the cards.
To make these free printable monster alphabet clip cards self-checking, you can put a small sticker on the back of the right answer. Then, kids can turn the cards over to check their work.
If their paper clip or clothespin is on the sticker, they’ve identified the correct answer!
