If you follow our curriculum in your classroom, which requires 15 minutes a day on the first day and 10 minutes a day for the next four days, you will see amazingly ridiculous phonological awareness growth in your students. This program is tried and true, used our K and first grade classrooms. This curriculum is based on 16 phonological awareness skills that we have identified in the Common Core for ELA. The activities/lessons are text-based, meaning the words and phrases for the phonological awareness lessons (which we call "listening games") are based on popular read aloud titles (books not included) from your monthly curricular themes. This program was written around the Kindergarten and First Grade Common Core standards and skills including the Common Core document, Appendix A, based on phonological awareness research and the general progression of phonological awareness skills in the foundational reading process. This curriculum is also appropriate for Pre-K and anyone working in a teaching capacity with K or 1st grade students, or older students with phonological awareness deficiencies. *see our note on the last page of the preview file about using this product with older students.*
The only PREP required to implement this curriculum is locating the weekly book. We offer two preparation options. The first option is paperless: once you download the file, email it yourself and open it on your iPad in iBooks as a pdf file and teach the lessons from your iPad in your lap. The second option is to print and spiral bind the pages together for ease in folding it back while it's sitting on your lap. After downloading and emailing or printing and binding, there is NO MORE PREP. You're ready to roll!
