Free Phonemic Awareness Guide and Activities
Phonemic awareness is the ability to recognize and manipulate the individual sounds (phonemes) in spoken words. It is a crucial skill for learning to read and spell in English, as it involves being able to hear, identify, and work with the phonemes in spoken language. This skill is important because it helps children learn to associate sounds with written letters and enables them to decode new words by sounding them out. It is typically developed in the preschool and early elementary school years through a variety of activities and games that focus on blending, segmenting, and manipulating individual sounds in words.
