PHONEMIC AWARENESS SUPERPACK {SMALL GROUP, CENTERS, GAMES AND ACTIVITIES} This packet was specially designed at the request of my sister, a special education teacher for 10 years. It is perfect for students in Pre-K and K, as well as 1 and 2. If used as a tool in first and second it would be for intervention and/or students with disabilities.

The activity that has the most options as a teaching tool are the word activity mats, which my sister uses every day as a special education teacher. They are worksheets that are filled with pictures that represent different types of phonemes (initial consonants, final consonants, vowels, blends, digraphs). I provide four different activities for each mat, but there are endless options for how you use them in your classroom. Some, but not all, of the activities in the packet include: popcorn pop, word activity mats, hidden picture, letter munchers, pancake flip, split it up, etc... Thank you, Kellnell. How to Teach Phonemic Awareness - Homeschooling with Dyslexia. One of the first steps in learning to read is developing a strong awareness of phonemes in language – phonemic awareness.

Interestingly, many dyslexics struggle with this, making weak phonemic awareness one of the classic signs of dyslexia in young children. Teaching phonemic awareness skills to our young kids, dyslexic or not, will give them a head start and a strong foundation as they learn to read. What is Phonemic Awareness Phonemes are the individual units of sound that make up words. For example, the word “sat” is made up of three phonemes: /s/ /a/ /t/. Phonemic awareness is not only the recognition that words are made up of small sound units, it is also the ability to break down, manipulate and blend phonemes. Importance of Phonemic Awareness Research has shown that phonemic awareness is the single strongest indicator for a child’s success at learning to read.

Phonemic awareness allows young readers to build another important element of reading: phonics. Rhymes Hearing Rhyme. Phonological Awareness. Phonemic Awareness Activities.

Phonemic awareness is the ability to hear, identify, and manipulate individual sounds, called phonemes, in spoken words. Phonemic awareness activities can be done with eyes shut. Phonemic awareness is not phonics, rather, phonological awareness forms the basis of phonics. Phonics is the understanding that sounds and print letters are connected; this is the first step towards “reading.” Before children learn to read, they need to become more aware of how the sounds in words work.

They must understand that words are made up of speech sounds, called phonemes.
