Phonemic Awareness
8 Pins
Before children begin reading words, they must have phonemic awareness. This means that they must be able to explore the different phonemes (sounds) that are in words. A wonderful way to get children to explore the sounds in words is to set up games and create songs that the children will enjoy. These games and songs should deal with rhyming, beginning sounds, end sounds, middle sounds, and manipulating sounds in words to create new words.
