Do you do a fire safety theme in your preschool or pre-k classroom? Here’s a fun, fire truck letter matching activity to use during your fire safety unit. This free fire truck letter matching printable will help your students learn to identify letters and develop fine motor skills at the same time.
Fire Truck Letter Matching Activity
To prepare this activity, first print one fire engine mat on cardstock for each child in your small group. You’ll also want to laminate your mats for durability.
Next, gather a set of 26 spring loaded clothespins per child. Then, write one letter on the clip end of each clothespin with a fine point permanent marker.
Finally, place one set of clothespins and a fire engine mat in plastic storage bag, one bag per child.
Pro Tip: use a different colored permanent marker for each set of clothespins so they don’t get mixed up.
How to Use the Fire Safety Letter Matching Activity
Invite your students to select a clothespin from their bag and clip it to the corresponding letter on their mat.
You can differentiate this activity to meet the needs of your students by using clothespins with uppercase or lowercase letters.
