Research suggests that trouble with phoneme awareness and phonological skills early on is a gauge for poor reading and spelling skills.

As teachers, it is our responsibility to ensure our students have a strong, and competent reading foundation by covering all phonemic awareness skills by first grade. .

  • Move through the Quick Prompts slowly repeating questions where necessary. Stop when students are repeatedly miss hearing or don’t understand. Revisit again the next day, a few pages prior to where you finished.

  • Make note of students who seem to be struggling, not participating, or who are silent. Group this targeted set of students and use the booklet in a smaller group.
