These little superheroes can leap a tall building in a single bound! They can carry uppercase letters to the top of the tallest skyscraper. Then, they can soar to the top of the lower building with the lowercase letters. Print this fun superhero letter sort for your Pre-K or Kindergarten Literacy Centers!

Superhero Letter Sort
As students learn to match each lowercase letter with its uppercase partner, they also need to know which of the pair is uppercase and which is lowercase. After all, that’s kind of the point of our dual letter system!
Distinguishing uppercase from lowercase will help with reading as well as writing. If kids zoom past the period at the end of a sentence, the capital letter beginning the next sentence should be like a flashing light reminding them to stop a moment.
With a little help from these friendly superheroes, your students can soon be ready to begin sentences and names with capital letters.

Superhero Letter Sort – Preparation
This activity does need a bit of preparation, so cue your favorite superhero movie to make easy work of it.
- Cut out and assemble each building. You’ll be folding all the solid lines, and cutting the dotted lines. Then glue or tape it closed. The open end goes on the bottom. Note, there are only 2 printed sides of the building in order to save your printer ink.
- Cut out each letter card and laminate if desired.
- Copy the recording sheets (double-sided if that works for you).
Alternatively, if you’d like more durable buildings, you can glue the printout to boxes or stacks of blocks.
Superhero Letter Sorting – Activity
To play, lay out the desired letters and set out the two buildings. The students can start off by simply matching uppercase and lowercase pairs. Then they can help the superheroes “fly” the letters to the top of the correct building.
Once the children are done sorting, they can write down the letters on the included recording sheets.
Before you know it, they’ll be super readers and writers – maybe not able to leap tall buildings, but surely able to reach new reading heights.
