Phonemic awareness is the highest correlate to early reading success. And phonemic awareness can be taught, not just caught.
Here is a terrific ten-item phonemic segmentation assessment, designed by an MA reading specialist, that can be administered whole-class. Using simple symbols, students select the sounds they do or do not hear. Also, get a reading assessment matrix to chart individual mastery of the elements of phonemic awareness and phonics.
This download also includes phonemic awareness games and activities guaranteed to entertain and teach phonemic segmentation.
These phonemic awareness assessments and activities have been selected from the comprehensive Teaching Reading Strategies
program, which includes the contents of Phonemic Awareness and Phonics Toolkit
as well as the direct instructional components to teach a half-year intensive or full-year reading intervention program.
