Phonemic awareness is literally ‘sound’ awareness. Phonemic awareness is understanding that words are made up of sounds and being able to hear, recognize and manipulate the individual sounds that make up a word. The ability to blend sounds together is one phonemic awareness skill. For example, the sound /t/ /o/ /p/ put together make the word ‘top’, the sounds /r/ /u/ /g/ put together make the word ‘rug’. Phonemic awareness is important because it is critical to reading and spelling success.
This power point will help children practice the skill of blending sounds together. Each slide shows the letters of a word, one at a time. All words are 3 letter/CVC words. Students say the sound as each letter appears individually on the slide. Then, they blend the sounds together to make a word. When the students have said the word the teacher can click the mouse to have the picture appear.
The power point will open as a read-only document. If you encounter any problems, please let me know.
