Help the young readers in your life build letter recognition skills with this set of letter matching tiles. Sure, you could likely find something very similar for purchase, but this set will help children become better readers because they're 3D printed! Okay, I can't guarantee that claim, but the reasoning seems sound, right?

To save on space the lowercase tiles are seated in the uppercase frames, but even at the lowest print resolution on my Replicator (5th gen) they came out easily. When time allows, I plan to redesign the files so that the lower case tiles can be printed separately, in a different color.


Overview and Background

Matching upper to lowercase takes practice, and here's a great way to help your young readers do so!

Lesson Plan and Activity

Make this tile set available for student review.

Great idea.
It would be nice to have the individual letters separately. I already lost one and I have to print off half the alphabet to replace it.

You should post this under education because I think it would be very helpful in a kindergarten classroom, and if people are looking for activities to do in their classroom, posting it under education will help them find it more easily. Also, you might get more likes if it is easier to find. :)

Great idea! Consider it done.
