Uppercase-Lowercase Matching Game

Quentin complained that he never gets to fill the plastic eggs with candy, so I used the idea of Uppercase/Lowercase matching I had seen at the hills and made a game of it. I wrote letters both in Uppercase and...

lowercase and hid the separated halves.

He had to find them and match them and then show them to me. If he was right (which he always was), he got to put a piece of candy inside and then put it aside to hide for his brothers.

The colors helped to make sure he was always was successful, he was able to fill eggs, hide them and see his brothers enjoy a Easter treat, which was shared with him, of course. Easy learning. All fun.

1+1+1=1 shows another way to use those plastic eggs to help reading skills by using word families.
