Having the ability to sound out, blend letter sounds together and spell words by breaking the sounds apart requires students to have phonemic awareness. In addition the oral language ability that students show while they play with sounds in words also represents their phonemic awareness (BLD, 2018).

Instruction

Rhyming can be used to practice & engage children in phonemic awareness (PA). In this activity, children sing familiar songs that they have memorized. With their teacher’s guidance, the students replace the first letter of certain words with the chosen letter. E.g., replacing the first letter of ‘Twinkle’ with the letter ‘Z’… “Zwinkle, Zwinkle, little star…”. This is an effective & useful lesson because it captures the students’ attention & uses their background knowledge on songs to teach…

This is a great activity to do in a classroom. It requires no prep time and can be done in any period of the day. This activity is engaging and captures the attention of the students. The instructional approach is effective because it uses students’ name to make ‘new silly words’. Playing around with sounds in words is a great activity to motivate students to develop their phonemic awareness.

This phonemic awareness activity is engaging & relevant for the students. The students are required to be ‘name detectives’ while the teacher gives them clues. This activity is useful & effective because students are familiar with their classmates’ names. It is a good starting activity for teaching phonemic awareness because the teacher uses both initial letter sounds & syllables to guide the students. E.g., this student’s name starts with _ sound” & “when I clap it out, it has _ syllables”

This engaging activity provides students with a fun way to identify & categorize phonemes. The alphabet bins include lots of diverse materials that could be from the classroom, student homes, or community. When the students match the items with the correct phoneme, it requires them to pay attention to the initial sound of the word. This activity is useful & effective because it promotes independence & gives many opportunities for students to use necessary skills for building phonemic…

Understanding

This is a great resource to get a deeper understanding of what phonemic awareness is. In addition to giving examples, they have explained common misconceptions about the topic as well. I would recommend this resource for new teachers that may not have a complete understanding of phonemic awareness. It is important for all teachers to understand the difference between phonemic awareness and phonics, because as this resource also explains, they are NOT the same and should be treated…

This resource is great to understand what phonemic awareness (PA) is & what it looks like. The information includes an introduction text that explains the different things that are included in PA (i.e., skill to notice, think about & play-around with individual sounds in words). Also, there are 7 videos that give examples & thorough explanations of the topic. I recommend this website for teachers that need visual explanations/examples of why PA is important & how it could be taught to…

Assessment

This assessment tool is an informal way of understanding whether or not students have appropriate phonemic awareness. It is also used to track students’ progress. This resource also includes suggestions on the age/grade and appropriate level at which students should be regarding phonemic awareness. This is a useful & effective assessment resource because it includes lots of examples and can be used in different ways.

This activity helps with developing phonological awareness by using familiar names & pictured words. During this activity, the teacher could keep notes on student progress. It can include assessment to see whether students can clap out the syllables & correctly sort the names & pictures. I believe this assessment is useful & effective because it can be used as an ongoing tool to monitor progress. Also, the activity is done in as a group so students will not feel testing anxiety.
