 Letter Sounds used to form simple words.
 Cooperative Learning Structure: Communication Skills This cooperative learning structure was chosen because of the type of lesson and desired group structure. The beginning level dual language students work well in small groups and need good communication skills in that setting. Vocabulary: agree, disagree, communicate.

 The students will be asked to identify simple words and the letter sounds that make the words in whole group setting.
 The agree/disagree value line will be discussed and explained. Vocabulary words will be identified and used in sentences. The activity will be explained and discussed.
 The students will be divided up into small groups and given their markers and value lines. The class will then have example words on the board to do in groups and share collectively.

Checking For Understanding:
 The students will be assessed in their feedback and participation during whole and small group. Formal assessment will be the group's response sheet.
