Geoboards are a wonderful tool for more then just shapes and creativity, with a little prep your preschooler or kindergartner can match uppercase and lowercase letters as they master the alphabet.
The alphabet has two sets of 26 letters which requires a lot of practice to get them all memorized. Little Dragon (age 4) asked to do this activity every day until he mastered each set of letters. He also enjoyed our free printable Dot-the-Letters activity for additional hands on learning.

Write uppercase and lowercase letters on the circle stickers. You can use multiple colored markers to give kids visual clues (uppercase and lower case letter A is red and uppercase and lowercase letter B is blue…) or you can write the letters all in one color.
Place the stickers on the geo board. The whole alphabet on one board may be overwhelming and a bit confusing so I suggest breaking up the letters in sections. You may want to put them on in alphabetical order, start with letters that look the same except for size (like the letter s,x, o), or mix some well known letters in with unknown letters that your child needs to work on.
Give the child the geo board and rubber bands. Show them how to put a rubber band in the board. Have them find a matching set of letters and put a rubber band on the board to connect them. Let them continue the activity and assist if needed. When each match is made, their minds will be stretching and growing (and so will the rubber bands-haha) 🙂
