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 third unit of 9. It is for the third month of school in kindergarten, first, or second grade or as intervention with older students.
This month teaches:
-Rhyming – Identifying and producing rhymes
-Identifying the number of syllables in a word
-Counting the number of words in a given sentence
-Isolating final and medial sounds in words - both long and short vowels and digraphs
-Blending words with long and short vowels as well as digraphs
-Segmenting words with long and short vowels as well as digraphs
-Substitution of initial phoneme and rime in a word
-Addition of beginning sound to create a word
-Deletion of the beginning sound of a word
As always, please ask questions before purchasing. Thank you so much!
