II. Model Type: Functional Academic Skills: reading and writing
III. Unit Goal: To identify upper and lower case letters in the English vocabulary
IV. Learning Objective: After being given a writing worksheet over different words with upper and
lowercase letters, the students will trace and write in the correct words getting 8/8 correct.
V. TEKS Objective: 110.12 (b) (1) (B) first grade identify upper- and lower-case letters.
VI. Special Needs/Background Information: This lesson will be provided to one first grade student with

engagement, Alphabet Car Game (Made out of color paper), upper and lower case letters of the alphabet
on circles for the tires, worksheet (Trace and Write) for independent activity.
VIII. Classroom management and environment: The class will be set up with one rounded table where the
student will be sitting on the outside of it and I will be sitting on the inside. The student will be able to call
out answers unless the teachers hand is raised.
IX. Engagement/Focus: Remember how everyone along with Mrs. Kari sing the ABCs each morning? Well
today we are going to learn that these letters come in upper and lower case forms when we write in
English! This information is important because upper and lowercase letters are used every time you write
anything for your future classes and even after you are done with school. As an engagement I will ask
student to touch their nose when they see words that have upper case letters in them. Then I will ask the
student to touch their ears when they see words that are lower case. Upper case words: (Elsa, America,
Texas). Lower case words: (mat, at, to).
X. Teacher Delivery and Instruction: See chart below
XI. Student Responses: See below
XII. Length of each activity: See below
XIII. Closure: Today you learned how to identify and write upper and lower case letters. This information is
important because upper and lowercase letters are used every time you write anything for your future
classes and even after you are done with school. Tomorrow we will learn how to put these letters we just
worked with and put them into actual English words all on our own!
XIV. Assessment: Teacher will assess students through completion of the Trace and Write worksheet, getting

Uppercase letters are always used at the
beginning of a sentence or title. Most words in title

Have you heard of what the Alphabet Car

Alphabet Car Game is a home made game that
will allow you to identify each letter of the
alphabet and you will be able to match which
upper or lowercase letter goes with one another.
Now we will begin using the Alphabet Car
Game. Let me show you an example of 3 letters
with their upper and lowercase letter (grab any 3
letters as examples and match them with their
corresponding letters).
Now we are going to match 3 letters together!
