Practice:
 Display the uppercase letters of the alphabet, approximately 3-5 at one time making sure to include the letters that represent the first letters of the first names of the children in your class. Sing the following chant and ask each child to identify and name the first letter of his/her name. Hickety, Pickety, Bumblebee, Can you find your first letter for me? This can be used as a transition to center time where independent practice can occur.
Accommodations:
 Alphabet Song: point to letters to provide a visual for visual learners. Hickety Pickety: Vary the number of letters and similarity of letters available depending on child's ability level. Focus on first letter of last name for children who have mastered first letter of first name. Provide child choice during center time.
