Phonemic awareness is the first step in learning how to read and spell. Phonemic awareness refers to the ability to recognize and manipulate the individual sounds that make up words.

So for example, whether a student can identify the beginning sound in a word, if a set of words rhymes, or break a word into syllables is highly dependent on their phonemic awareness skills.

These phonemic awareness task cards ensure you're teaching these skills to build their phonemic awareness.

Many struggling readers have a deficit in phonemic awareness and need intervention in this area. These task cards can be used with beginning readers and those needing intervention.

This set includes 124 task cards which are done orally and within 5 minutes. These are so easy to implement since they do not involve any planning or prepping, or materials other than the one copy the teacher reads to the students. They are systemic and explicit, building from beginner to advanced. You can do these activities at any time during the day, as a whole group, small group, or one on one.

In addition to the printable pdf pages, I included a video that walks you through how to use these, in case some of these concepts are new to you.

The following skills are included in this set:

  • rhyming
  • alliteration
  • words in a sentence
  • syllable counting
  • syllable blending

  • sound discrimination
  • onset & rime division
