How to use clip cards with preschoolers?
Print the activity on card stock paper. Then cut out the four rectangles. Each rectangle contains an uppercase letter with three lowercase letters.
Lay a few cards out for your student with a few clothespins. If they haven’t used clip cards before then you can show them an example of how to use it.
If working with a younger child that doesn’t know all their alphabet letters then you can choose to do 4 or 8 at one time. For an older child who is familiar with all their alphabet letters you can do all the cards.
We tend to do letter of the week activities so I normally add these clip cards to the activities that we do. I will have my child do the clip card for the letter we are focusing on that week, as well as previous letters we have done. This is a great way to refresh on what they have already learned.
