Quick and easy letter matching activity for your alphabet center

Need a fun activity to keep the kids occupied?  Do you need some new preschool center activities?  Well bring out the clothespins! This is a quick and easy letter matching activity that is perfect for your alphabet centers.  First you write letters on clothespins and then have your students clip the clothespin onto the matching letters.  I use two different versions.  One that matches the uppercase letter to the same uppercase letter (shown in the red picture) and another version (shown in the blue picture) where you match the uppercase letter to the lowercase letter.  It's great fine motor practice as well as for practice on those pre-reading skills.
