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

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.
