In the same way we have students orally rehearse their stories before writing children need to work with phonemes, or sounds, before attaching letters to them. This is phonemic awareness.
Phonemic awareness is essential for beginning readers and must be systematically taught. Phonemic awareness is the ability to hear and manipulate individual phonemes, or sounds. All this work can be done in the dark – with no letters attached. Phonemic awareness is a very good predictor of reading success and it must be explicitly taught.
This unit teaches skills required for phonemic awareness:
-Beginning, final and medial sound isolation
-Blending and segmenting phonemes
-Manipulating phonemes by adding or deleting sounds
This unit can be used prior to, or in conjunction with, a phonics program. It can also be used as an intervention for struggling readers who have difficulty isolating, blending, segmenting phonemes when reading and/or writing.
This is the first unit of 9. It is for the first month of school in kindergarten, first, or second grade and/or as intervention with older students.
This month focuses on:
-Rhyming – both listening for rhymes and producing rhymes
-Isolating beginning, final, and medial sounds in cvc words
-Blending compound words and two-syllable words
-Substitution of one word in a compound word
-Adding words and syllables to a word to create a compound word or a new word
-Deleting words and syllables from compound words and 2 syllable words
As always, please ask questions before purchasing. Thank you so much!
