Among the first step to introduce the ABC letters to kids, is to familiarize them with the look of all 52 ABC symbols. These include 26 lowercase letters and 26 uppercase letters.

But for some 3 – 5 years old, recognizing both lowercase and uppercase letters at once can be overwhelming and confusing.

That’s why I created this Thanksgiving Letter Maze, it introduces letters in 3 bite-sized steps.

  • Step 1 : Lowercase Letter Maze
  • Step 2 : Uppercase Letter Maze
  • Step 3 : Uppercase & Lowercase Letter Maze

To make it fun, Thanksgiving Letter Maze is created to be about helping the turkey to find its friend. Kids love to feel that they are helping or contributing to something!

How to Use Thanksgiving Letter Maze

There are 3 sets of Letter Maze in this packet.

  • Step 1 : Lowercase Letter Maze
  • Step 2 : Uppercase Letter Maze
  • Step 3 : Uppercase & Lowercase Letter Maze

For beginning learners, I’d suggest that you start with only Lowercase Letter Maze or only Uppercase Letter Maze.

Focusing only on Lowercase Letters, or only on Uppercase Letters helps to avoid overwhelming little kids with too many letter symbols.

Thanksgiving Letter Maze : Uppercase Letters

This activity is about uppercase letter recognition.

Have your kids identify the letter in the black flag at the corner, and find & color similar letters.

The pictures are to help your kids remember better how the letters sound.

For example, the letter ‘a’ has ‘apple’ pictures. This is so that preschoolers can remember the letters easier because it gives them meaning; the letter ‘a’ is for apple, and the letter ‘b’ is for banana, and more.

Introducing Uppercase-Lowercase Pairs

Gradually introduce your kids to the Uppercase-Lowercase Letter Maze.

Start with letters that their uppercase and lowercase looks similar, such as the letter ‘c’, the letter ‘s’, or the letter ‘z’.

Later slowly introduce your young learners to the letters that look totally different for their uppercase and lowercase, such as the letter A, or the letter B.

The way I tell my kids is, the uppercase letters are the mom & dad of the letter, and their lowercase is the baby of the letter.

Some babies look similar to their mom & dad, and some look totally different; so does the letter ABC.

To make it more fun, let’s make a competition between your kids; who find all the letters first, win the game!

Routine can bore kids easily. To make things more interesting, it is recommended to change the activity’s ‘tools’ once in a while.

Instead of coloring the letters in the Letter Maze using crayons, you can also give your kids other ‘tools’ to mark the letters.

Other ways to mark the letters can be:

  • Stamp on the letters using ABC stamps
  • Dab on the letters using dot markers or bingo dabbers
  • Stroke highlighters on the letters

Or use toys or manipulatives to mark on the letters.

For example, put these on the letters:

  • Put cubes on the letters, or
  • Put gummy bears, or
  • Put mini erasers, or
  • Put dot stickers, or
  • Put candies

It will be so much fun!
