Phonemic Awareness

SPOTLIGHT ON 

PHONEMIC AWARENESS

"Phonemic awareness is the ability to notice, think about, and work with the individual sounds in words. We know that a student's skill in phonemic awareness is a good predictor of later reading success or difficulty."

Before children learn to read print, it's necessary that they develop what is called phonemic awareness.  Phonemic awareness involves sounds that make up words.  If your child is phonemically aware, that means that he/she can:

hear rhymes

produce rhymes

blend sounds

segment sounds

delete sounds

and

substitute sounds

There are a variety of ways to strengthen your child's phonemic awareness (even before he/she becomes a reader)!  Check out some of the articles and activities below for more information...
