Phonemic awareness is essential to learning to read in an alphabetic writing system, such as English, because letters represent sounds or phonemes. Without phonemic awareness, phonics (the next step to learning to read) makes little sense. If a learner cannot hear the sounds in words, they may have great difficultly connecting sounds with their written symbols or blending sounds to make a word. Although there are 26 letters in the English language, there are approximately 40 phonemes. ...
Learners will practice hearing and saying the different English phonemes to help them prepare for the next step of reading.
My degree is in Childhood Education and I taught first-grade in public school. I also have a four-year-old son and have been working on these skills with him.
If there is time, learners may be asked to quickly find something that has a sound we are working on. They should also bring paper and a pencil to class or a dry erase board and marker.
25 minutes per week in class, and no time outside of class.
