In your lesson plans when your student is called upon to identify letters or combinations of letters, that's just another way of expressing to you, the teacher, that your student should SOUND and NAME, SPELL and CLASSIFY each set.
When a person walks into a lineup to be identified in a group of other people as the certain individual that he or she is, the identification is made based on something tangible. It may be the appearance, a certain look, a tone of voice but something sparks the memory of the one making the identification.
Your student should be able to identify the letters by name, sound and group classification. Each set of letters should stand out and express its own unique personality.
To identify letters, your student should:
Say their sound!
Say their alphabetic name!
Spell the letters in a set (combination) by saying each alphabetic name in the order in which each appears.
Classify each set
