Alphabet Assessment Awards

These printable alphabet assessment awards will help you determine which children know letters and also inform parents of their progress.

Alphabet Assessment Awards uppercase letters

No matter how many letters they do know, children will feel a sense of accomplishment when they take home an award or happy note to show their parents. (These are not intended to be worksheets: you use them as you work with the child, or observe them through play. Then send these home for communication with parents.)

Each award is a half sheet of paper and has 8-9 letters. It says “I can name these letters.” By only having 8-9 letters, it won’t be quite so overwhelming to children as it sometimes can be when naming all 26 uppercase and lowercase at once.

When a child correctly names a letter, mark it on the award so parents can see which ones they know. You could either circle the letters with a marker or highlight over the letters with a highlighter.

You will probably want to record which letters the children can name. A few ways to record them:

  • Photocopy the awards for your files.
  • Take a photo of the awards and save them in a folder on your computer.
  • Record the letters they know on a letter assessment form <– at the link.

I have more of these coming! Future assessment awards will include:

  • Numbers
  • Colors
  • Shapes
  • Syllables
  • Rhyming
  • Oral Blending
  • Beginning Sounds
  • Patterns
  • More!

Feel free to request a certain award, and if it is Pre-K appropriate, I will put it on the to-do list.

Note: If any letters are not formed the way you feel they should be, they can be changed with a marker and white-out. Draw lines on the uppercase I, make a top on the uppercase J, etc. as it suits you.

    Thanks, Karen! I plan to use these in my Kindergarten Classroom to let the parents know how their child is doing. It is also fun for the kids to see their progress.

  2. Kristen says

    Thank you so much for sharing your work. I literally use almost all of the printables that you share with your blog followers! My students beg me to get out the patterns you have created for the pattern blocks. Thank you for making my classroom more exciting. :-)

    Thank you so much for this site. I will be teaching Pre K in the Fall of 2015 and have been searching for websites to give me ideas. I am at a disadvantage because this is a pilot project for this school and I will have to share a space with our Before/After School Care Program as they ‘test’ it out to see if it is viable. I am really excited and terribly apprehensive at the same time. If there is anyone out there who can give me advice on a few things, I would be solo appreciative.
    1) How do you set up a temporary space that will, for the most part, have to be taken down and put back every day?
    2) How do I find websites/teachers that can give me solutions for temporary centres?
    3) We do not have a ‘curriculum’ to follow in Pre K here so I am having to write curriculum for this class. (22 students of 3 and 4 year olds mixed, 3 hours a morning). Where do I find centre ideas and actual lesson plans?

    Your site is WONDERFUL and so INFORMATIVE and I thank you for that. Is there anyone else out there who can also give me ideas for writing curriculum?
