Learning Objectives

Students will be able to identify and select lowercase letters based on their corresponding sounds.

Introduction (5 minutes)

Begin by explaining to the students that today's lesson is about selecting lowercase letters based on the sounds they hear. Introduce the concept of associating letter sounds with words.

Explicit Instruction/Teacher modeling (10 minutes)

Learn with an Example: Ask the question: "Listen to the word I read aloud. Which letter do you hear?" Model the process with an example: "This is the letter d. Dog." Emphasize the connection between the sound of the letter and the word.

Guided Practice (5 minutes)

Distribute the Guided Practice Worksheet: Select Lowercase Letters by Sound. Use word cards with different initial sounds and guide students to circle the corresponding lowercase letters on the worksheet. This can be done in pairs or small groups.

Independent Practice (10 minutes)

Distribute the Independent Practice Worksheet: Select Lowercase Letters by Sound. Provide students with additional word cards and have them independently circle the lowercase letters corresponding to the sounds. Monitor and assess for misconceptions, intervening as needed.

Differentiation

Support

Offer one-on-one support for students struggling with letter-sound associations. Provide additional word cards for extra practice.

Extension

Introduce more complex words with varied letter sounds. Have students create their own word cards to share with peers.

Assessment (5 minutes)

Assess student understanding through observations during guided and independent practice, as well as the exit ticket.

Review and closing (5 minutes)

Summarize the importance of recognizing lowercase letters by their sounds and its role in developing strong reading foundations.
