Support students phonemic awareness with alien nonsense words. This activities is designed to develop students' awareness of initial, medial and final sounds. It also helps students to begin to understand that there are real words and nonsense words. Students have an aliens name sheet and the PowerPoint has the pictures of the aliens (their names are in the notes section for the teacher to read). As you go through the PowerPoint and read the names of the aliens, students look for the matching alien on their page and write down it's name after the teacher has called it.
