Are your students learning to recognize alphabet letters? If so, this Hidden Letter Printable is a great way to put what they’ve been learning into action!
This fun printable shows a gumball machine; however, the uppercase alphabet letter is hidden behind the gumballs. Students will be detectives and use their sleuthing skills to figure out what the letter is! They can look at the straight lines and curved lines to help them identify the letter.
There are three letter choices for the students to choose from. Students will circle or stamp which letter it is.
This printable is very cute with the gumball machines, but what skills does this work on?
One thing preschoolers and kindergarteners work on is visual discrimination. Learning to distinguish similarities and differences between letters visually helps students when they are learning to read words. If they can’t do this well, students will have trouble reading fluently, quickly, and accurately. This may cause the student to re-read the words or sentence that was difficult to visually discriminate.
The main focus on this activity is learning to identify letters. This is just a fun way to work on these skills!
