A Sound Floor A Floor for :It All Begins With Sound When someone speaks, we instantly recognize and organize the speech sounds in the ‘Mind’s Ear.’ Experience the ‘Mind’s Ear.’Say this sentence rapidly: “Come and explore the Reading Treehouse.” In the second or so that it takes to say this, your listener has already discerned and organized its 24 speech sounds, and by their order and arrangement, has recognized the words and understood the meaning.

In fluent reading, strings of symbols are transformed into a flowing stream of speech in the ‘Mind’s Ear.’ The letters just seem to announce their sounds.We don’t ‘think’ about each one--it’s more as if they speak to us. This comes from auditory skill, and practice. To learn this skill, children must first be skilled with sound. The special sound-skills that make good readers, are known as Phonological Awareness, or Phonemic Awareness.
5 Quick, Easy, and Fun Phonemic Awareness Activities Learning to read can be quite an overwhelming task for small children. In fact, if you think about it, it’s astounding that children are even capable of learning to read in such a short amount of time.

Phonological and Phonemic Awareness Phonological awareness is a broad skill that includes identifying and manipulating units of oral language – parts such as words, syllables, and onsets and rimes. Children who have phonological awareness are able to identify and make oral rhymes, can clap out the number of syllables in a word, and can recognize words with the same initial sounds like 'money' and 'mother.' Phonemic awareness refers to the specific ability to focus on and manipulate individual sounds (phonemes) in spoken words. Phonemes are the smallest units comprising spoken language. Phonemes combine to form syllables and words. Students at risk for reading difficulty often have lower levels of phonological awareness and phonemic awareness than do their classmates. What the problem looks like A kid's perspective: What this feels like to me Children will usually express their frustration and difficulties in a general way, with statements like "I hate reading!" I don't know any words that rhyme with cat. How to help
Theme Poems In this online tool, elementary students can write poems based on shapes from five different categories: Nature, School, Sports, Celebrations, and Shapes. Within these categories, 32 different shapes are included. By selecting a shape, students are learning how to focus their writing on a particular topic or theme. In addition, as part of the online tool, students are prompted to brainstorm, write, and revise their poems, thus reinforcing elements of the writing process. Students can save their draft poems to revise later. For ideas of how to use this tool outside the classroom, see Theme Poems in the Parent & Afterschool Resources section.

Words that rhyme with cat Phonemic Awareness is the ability to hear and manipulate sounds in words. Phonemic Awareness includes skills such as blending sounds, segmenting sounds, rhyme, on-set/rhyme and beginning and ending sound awareness. How Now Brown Cow: Phoneme Awareness Activities Research indicates a strong relationship between early phoneme awareness and later reading success, and it links some reading failure to insufficiently developed phoneme awareness skills. Intervention research clearly demonstrates the benefits of explicitly teaching phoneme awareness skills. Many children at risk for reading failure are in general education classrooms where phoneme awareness training is not part of their reading program. This article presents a set of developmental phoneme awareness training activities that the special educator can integrate collaboratively into existing kindergarten and first-grade reading programs. Instructional considerations Before preparing to conduct phoneme awareness activities in a general education setting, the special educator needs to become familiar with the method being used to teach reading and should observe the class in action. Phoneme awareness activities work well in classrooms where teachers implement shared reading. Literature Figure 1.
