This set was created to allow students to first learn to HEAR the repetition of the SAME BEGINNING SOUNDS with ALL 31 LETTER SOUNDS of the alphabet BEFORE moving on to phonological awareness. A reader with strong phonemic awareness will demonstrate the ability to hear RHYME and ALLITERATION (the repetition of the same consonant sound at the beginning of several different words used in a sentence or paragraph), find the different sound in a set of words and BLENDS and SEGMENT sounds.
PHONEMIC AWARENESS is the first step students take in developing PHONOLOGICAL AWARENESS. Phonemic awareness is NOT phonics. Phonemic awareness is AUDITORY and does not involve words or letters in print. This is a GROWING SET that will BEGIN focusing on SEGMENTATION of FIRST SOUND ISOLATION. For example, What is the first sound you hear in Sissy Snake /s/? Looking at wordless pictures, students will pick a card, say smile. If they can hear the first sound in isolation then they can move on and build on their PHONOLOGICAL AWARENESS.
This set includes 26 (8.5 x 11) ANIMAL POSTERS are NAMED for the PHONEMIC SOUND sorting pictures in this set. By using ANIMAL CHARACTERS, students become familiar with the BEGINNING SOUNDS of each animal and the sound it makes before being introduced to LETTERS. You also get SORTING
(4 x 5) ANIMALS of 26 SOUNDS CARDS that match your teaching posters. There are 6 PHONEMIC BEGINNING SOUND CARDS for all 26 letters, but X. For X the words will END with the "ks" sound made by X. Pictures are COLORFUL, EASY TO IDENTIFY, and SOUND out. This growing set will include SYLLABLE SORTS RHYMING SORTS, WORDS for PHONOLOGICAL AWARENESS, PUZZLES, and MORE! As I add to this set, the price will go up! The BEGINNING price of $6 will allow you to just go to your purchases and DOWNLOAD the parts I will be adding to this set. I am needing this for my Kindergarten Classroom, so this starting price of $6 will not be lasting long.
All you need to do is print, laminate, cut a part,and set out in your literacy centers. Depending on your students, you may want to two sounds at a time, 3 or more, or only focus on one sound each day by using the SORTING HEADERS, you can mix in sounds that DO NOT match so students have a more choices of HEARING the BEGINNING SOUNDS each ANIMAL NAME SAYS.
I have included set up and instructions, a chart for you to have of ANIMAL NAMES, and more with this GROWING SET!
