Owls Alphabet Sort & Match Activity

Pre-K and kindergarten kids will love this owl themed alphabet sort activity! Create a sensory experience for kids by placing the owl cards into a sensory bin with some coloured rice. Students will look for the owl alphabet cards, identify the letter and then place the owl on the matching log.  

FREE printable alphabet activity featuring owls on a log or branch. Great for preschool and kindergarten kids to practice letter recognition and upper to lowercase matching. Perfect for owl and animal lovers!

To prepare:

Print and laminate all the cards. You could also use dry erase inserts for these if you want to skip the lamination step. Print as many sets as you need for your set of students. Cut up the owl cards, you could also cut up the log cards but I didn’t cut them up just to provide more of a challenge for the kids.

Alphabet Sort – Owls on a Log

This activity is so much fun for preschoolers and kindergarten kids alike. You could totally differentiate this alphabet activity depending on the  level of the students in your group. Once you’ve prepared the log cards, place them on the table along with the sensory tub and owl alphabet cards (inside the tub). The kids will look for an owl card and pick one out randomly. They will identify the letter name and then look for the matching log strip. There are upper and lowercase letters for practice. Have the kids match all the owl cards onto the logs. For an easier option, have the kids match only a few letters at a time.

You could also choose the letters you are working on and focus on a particular set rather than the whole set at once. The kids will love doing this! If you would like these mats larger, print the mats on A3 poster paper.
