Phonemic Awareness - Pre Reading Skills - Reading Skills Pyramid - Time4Learning Phonemic awareness is the understanding that words are made up of sounds which can be put together in different ways to make different words. Simply put, phonemic awareness is the moment a child realizes that if the “b” in “bat” is changed to a “c”, then the word becomes “cat.” Phonemic awareness is a critical pre-reading skill which is often overlooked. And while each child is different, most learn to read following a similar sequence. Many are able to continue with no trouble when steps are missed, but others may have difficulty later because they didn’t make the connection. Learning to read should be an exciting time, and with Time4Learning, it can be.

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.
