I’m not winter’s biggest fan. Not by a long shot.
But I do love snowflakes. They are incredibly intricate and, even though they’re fragile, each one is unique.
That always blows my mind.
So I thought snowflakes would be a fun theme for a brand new English and Spanish letter matching activity!
This early literacy resource is a perfect addition to winter literacy centers!
And what’s even better is that it offers hands-on uppercase and lowercase alphabet recognition practice in two languages.
Awesome for ELL learners!

How to Use the English and Spanish Letter Matching Activity with Students
So – how can you use this with your early readers?
My personal favorite is to set it up as a reusable center activity.
Add hook and loop adhesive coins to the back of the lowercase letter circles. And then add them to the center of each snowflake card.
Students can match up the lowercase letters to the uppercase letters over and over again.
If you cut out the answer key cards and place them on an O ring, you can keep the answer key at the center for self-checking!
You can also use this as a one-time cut and paste activity.
Students can use child-safe scissors to cut out the lowercase circles and glue them onto the correct snowflake uppercase letter cards.
If you decide to use the blackline set, students can color the cards in for themselves!
Another option is to laminate the uppercase snowflake cards.
Then students can practice writing the matching lowercase letters with dry erase markers.
This is a good option if you have students who have already learned their lowercase letters and you need to differentiate the activity.
You can also print the resource at half-size.
The smaller page size makes it an ideal size to place in morning tubs!
