Buddy Sticks - Put like stickers, letters, etc. on the bottom of sticks. When you get ready to do a partner project let children choose a stick. The person whose stick matches theirs becomes their partner.
*Put a letter, shape, numeral, and sticker on the four ends of the stick. Children will be surprised by the category you call for them to match up.

*Match uppercase and lowercase letters.
*Pass these out for children to hold up as you sing alphabet songs.
*Place in the classroom library. Children choose a letter and then match it up in the book.
