Beach has always been a favorite theme on the site. I love putting out something for it every year. I love that you can also use the theme in winter as a looking towards summer as well.
Today I have a fun letter and number sorting activity. I thought it would be fun to have an activity that works on using both! You get to have a fun time sorting shells.
There are many different ways that teachers work on letters and numbers. I know that recognizing that they are different is one way. I made this fun set to work on this learning skill.
The set has all 26 letters of the alphabet in uppercase and lowercase and numbers 1 to 24. I have both sets of letters because some people work just uppercase or just lowercase.
Each letter and number is on a shell to be sorted.
There are two buckets with the words letters and numbers. This is the sorting mat that you can use with kids.
How we used these Beach Letter & Number Sorting printables
You can give them a set number of letter and numbers to sort in a sensory bin. This allows them to see some of the letter and numbers and have some sensory play.
If you have younger kids start of just one of the cases of letters. If they are older have them sort a mixed set of uppercase and lowercase letters.
After you have sorted them you can have them write out the letters and number they sort on a piece of blank paper. We use the beach themed writing paper. They traced each letter across one line.
Because the set has uppercase and lowercase letters you can do some matching. It is a fun way to reuse letters.
You can also use the numbers for counting activities. You can give them a number and some unifix cubes and have them match the number.
