The children will be working on identifying their letters and forming their letters in ABC Match activity! This works great for kids who are struggling with identifying their letters like ELL / ESL kids. The lion paw themed cards will spike the child’s interest as they pick a card and say the letter name.

The kids will ABC Match and Trace or rainbow trace their letters, use crayons, markers or coloring pencils. To make this a versatile and re-usable activity, you can also choose to laminate the recording sheet and have the kids use dry erase markers on the sheet as they work on their letter identification and formation skills.

Upgrade this activity with a fun sensory bin and use ‘brown sand’ within the tub along with the paw cards.

If your student is a fan of the carnivorous animal the lion, the Disney movie The Lion King, or the Disney Junior show The Lion Guard, they will enjoy this themed activity for practicing tracing letters and working letter discrimination at the same time.

If you just can’t wait to be king…. you will start by stacking Simba’s Paw Alphabet Cards in the middle of the table. Now hand out a recording sheet to each student in the group. Explain that they are to choose one card at a time. They say the letter on the card (there are letters from A to Z) and then find it on their ABC Printable recording sheet.

Next up they will trace their abcs – we like to use a rainbow trace (or use markers, scented markers, colored pencils, highlighters and more) the letters on their recording sheet. They repeat this process until they’ve colored or traced all the letters on their sheet!
