### Materials and Preparation

• Guided Practice Worksheet: Match Lowercase Letters to a, b, d, e, g, h, n, q, r

• Independent Practice Worksheet: Match Lowercase Letters to a, b, d, e, g, h, n, q, r

• Large letter cards for uppercase and lowercase letters

### Learning Objectives

Students will match lowercase letters to their corresponding uppercase counterparts: a, b, d, e, g, h, n, q, r.

### Introduction

Start by explaining to students that each letter in the alphabet can have an uppercase (capital) and lowercase form. Present the key idea that uppercase and lowercase letters are the same but written in different styles. Show examples using the letters Aa to Zz.

### Explicit Instruction/Teacher modeling

Learn with an Example: Ask the question: "Pick the lowercase letter that matches G." Present the solution: "G and g match. They are the same letter." Show the distinction between uppercase and lowercase: "This letter G is uppercase, and this letter g is lowercase."

### Independent Practice

Distribute the Independent Practice Worksheet: Match Lowercase Letters to a, b, d, e, g, h, n, q, r. Have students independently circle the matching lowercase letters. Monitor and assess for misconceptions, intervening as needed.

## Support

Offer one-on-one support for students struggling with letter matching. Provide extra letter cards for continued practice.

## Extension

Introduce more sets of letters for matching. Encourage students to create their own matching games.

### Assessment

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

### Review and closing

Summarize the importance of recognizing both uppercase and lowercase letters and their corresponding matches.

### Misconceptions

Some students may struggle with differentiating between uppercase and lowercase letters. Reinforce the concept with additional examples and practice.
