2. The fallowing day I will go around the class and have them tell me the 5 letters of the day.
3. Every 2 days I will tell them to write as many letters as they remember in 2 minutes.

E. Accommodations (Differentiated Instruction)-

1. If students are having problems understanding, I will find time before or after class to help those students.
2. If student is shy to sing, I will tell them to just recite the letters, or find any other accommodation.

1. I will ask the class everyday if they have any issues with any letters.
2. I will make sure at some point during the week to ask each students if they understand the work individually.

2. I will have them write all the letters on their own at the end of the week.
7. Evaluation-
1. The test scores should better allow me to see what the students are or aren't understanding.
2. Everyday I should be able to see how much more the class remembers from our daily alphabet routines.
8. Teacher Reflection-
After the lesson plan is completed, I would like to take the good and leave the bad from the lesson plan. I hope that all my students learn the alphabet in an efficient matter.
