Phonological Awareness

Details

Phonological awareness is a broad skill that includes identifying and manipulating units of oral language.  Children who have phonological awareness are able to identify and make oral rhymes, can clap out the number of syllables in a word, and can recognize words with the same initial sounds like ‘money’ and ‘mother.’
– Reading Rockets

Phonological awareness is the number one predictor of a child who is going to struggle in the area of reading, writing, and spelling.  Research tells us phonological awareness skills can be taught through direct instruction and exposure.

Come spend a day with us and discover the principles of planning strategic lessons to address these critical skills.

Learn how to incorporate manipulatives and reinforcing activities to make this area of crucial learning fun!
