Learning Objectives

Students will be able to identify upper- and lowercase letters of the alphabet.


(5 minutes)
  • Begin the lesson by showing your class a sea life shape with any letter.
  • Ask your students to identify the letter. Have them identify it as an uppercase (capital) or lowercase (small) letter. For example, if you are holding up an A, make sure they identify it as an uppercase A.
  • Explain to your students that they will “treasure hunt” for the bubble that matches, or is the same as, the letter on the sea life creature. For example, hold up bubbles with a lowercase A and a lowercase O. Ask your students to identify which letter matches with the sea life creature.
