What is phonemic awareness?
Phonemic awareness is the ability to hear, identify, and move individual sounds (manipulate) - phonemes - in spoken words.
Phonemic awareness is important because it:
improves student's word reading and comprehension
helps students learn to spell
Phonemic awareness can be developed through a number of activities, including asking students to:
identify and categorize sounds
blend sounds to form words
delete or add sounds to form new words
substitute sounds to make new words
Phonemic awareness instruction is most effective when:
students are taught to move phonemes by using different alphabet letters to make new words
instruction focuses on only one or two alphabetical programs
phonemic instruction is taught in Kindergarten or First Grades or with struggling readers
How The Family Readers implement phonemic awareness research
The Storybooks are systematic learning activities focusing on accumulative learning. This produces greater gains in reading and spelling, without confusion about which type to apply.
The students acquire the skills, with repetition, leaving enough time to learn thoroughly before moving on to a more difficult manipulation.
