      Good morning-

      At pre-K it will be difficult to screen students, as many, if not all of them, are not yet reading. For students in K, many district administers the DIBELS, which requires students to identify lowercase letters, capitol letters, and their sounds (among other skills). Some students may not be ready for it, but for those students who are "reading" at that level, this section of the DIBELS gives K teachers some data regarding which letters students are struggling with. You can just create your own "inventory" by diagnosing and assessing students' understanding of letters and the sounds they make. A solid foundation of letters and sounds is an important foundation for reading and can be used as more of a game to help kids love learning.
