How Now Brown Cow: Phoneme Awareness Activities

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. Related:  Phonemic Awareness

Phonemic Activities for the Preschool or Elementary Classroom This article features activities designed to stimulate the development of phonemic awareness in preschool and elementary school children. The activities originally appeared in the book Phonemic Awareness in Young Children: A Classroom Curriculum. Listening to sequences of sounds From chapter 3: Listening games Objective To develop the memory and attentional abilities for thinking about sequences of sounds and the language for discussing them. Materials needed Objects that make interesting, distinctive sounds. Activity In this game, the children are challenged first to identify single sounds and then to identify each one of a sequence of sounds. Once the children have caught on to the game, make two noises, one after the other. After the children have become quite good with pairs of noises, produce a series of more than two for them to identify and report in sequence. Variations With the children's eyes closed, make a series of sounds. Nonsense Book of familiar stories or poems Clapping names

Popplet and Pizza So how does a pizza and attacking multi-syllabic words go together you are wondering? You don't eat a whole pizza at once, in one bite and if you don't know a long word (multi-syllabic word) you don't try to read the whole thing at once. You break it down (slice it up like a pizza) and read it (eat it) bite by bite! It's gotta be in kid language so they get it! :) My groups in grades 1-3 need a lot of practice with breaking words into syllables to try to read them. The kids are interested in anything done on the iPads, of course. With this app, you can create as many Popplets, or boxes, as you need. My first grade groups needed to go back and do some more work on story events. Students did a quick sketch in each box to represent what they would write about on their B-M-E page. I can see we will be using Popplet a lot!

Curriculum and Instruction - Student Center Activities, Grades 2-3 - Student Center Activities, Grades 2-3 Frequently Asked Questions about the K-5 Student Center Activities. Introduction During the spring 2004 Florida Reading First school site visits, staff from the Florida Center for Reading Research (FCRR) determined that teachers may benefit from classroom materials that would be immediately useful in implementing independent student center activities. In 2004-2005, a team of teachers at FCRR reviewed current research, collected ideas, and created materials for use in kindergarten and first grade classrooms. In 2005-2006, a team of teachers at FCRR reviewed current research, collected ideas, and created materials for use in second and third grade classrooms. The 2-3 Student Center Activities include three books and one DVD: 1. The first two books contain Activity Plans and Activity Masters that are ready for immediate use in classrooms. Accessing Professional Development DVD, Teacher Resource Guide, and Student Center Activities The Teacher Resource Guide is posted below as a PDF file.

Well, here is my first unit for this notebook. This unit contains activities for each of the stages of phonemic awareness (sentence segmenting, rhyme and alliteration, blending and segmenting syllables, onset rime blending and segmentation, phoneme blending and segmentation, and phoneme deletion and manipulation.) They are very easy to implement and need very little preparation. These activities are perfect for small groups, but can also be used in whole group or individual settings.
