Step 3: Start the letter matching

Explain to your child what they have to do.

Tell them to start with the first lower case letter sticker. Can they find the corresponding upper case letter on the cardboard roll?

When they do they can cover that letter with a sticker to mark it as done. Then they can move onto the next one.

Do the first one or two together to get them going. Then let them get on with the activity independently. You can get something else done in the meantime.
