Letter Knowledge Assessment Resource:

Assessing children is important in figuring out what they know and what they still need to learn. Determining their letter knowledge can be very simple and can be done through every day learning activities.

A child who has letter knowledge…

  • Understands that each letter has its own shape

To prepare this letter knowledge resource, fill out the form below to get this assessment in your inbox. After receiving the email, download and print the recording sheet, letter cards, and pictures cards. I like to print my resources on white card stock, because it is more durable. But, you can use copy paper too. Next, laminate the cards so you can reuse this resource and cut the cards apart.


If you want your kids to use the cards to practice their letters and sounds, you can punch holes in the corners and put the cards on large rings. 


How To Use The Letter Knowledge Assessment Resource: 

There are many ways to use this resource to assess your children’s letter knowledge. You can use the letter cards and picture cards during your circle time, whole group instruction, or small groups to practice and test your kids’ letter knowledge. You can start with just a few letters at a time and then add more letters as your children’s letter knowledge increases.

Then, you can also use the picture cards to check what sounds your children know and which ones they still need to learn. You can show them a card and ask what sound the picture begins with. You can also give your kids a sound and have them find the picture card that begins with that sound. 


Beginning Sound Assessment


Use the recording sheet to keep track of the capital and lowercase letters and sounds that your children know and still need to learn. You can use it throughout the year to help you plan your lessons and activities so your kids will grow and learn.  


This Letter Knowledge Assessment Resource can be used by teachers and parents to track your children’s knowledge of capital letters, lowercase letters, and letter sounds throughout the year.
