Prior to the beginning of the alphabet unit, students will be assessed in order to see which letters they can identify, produce the sound, and form the upper- and lower-case version. Each student will be given the same assessment at the beginning of the unit as well as at the end, in order to see their progress. The assessment consists of a folder with every letter of the alphabet. Students will be asked to say the letter name, the letter sound, and produce the upper- and lower-case letter in the space provided next to the letter. The letter sheets on the folders will be laminated, so students will use a dry-erase marker to write.
