One of the most compelling and well-established findings in the research on beginning reading is the important relationship between phonemic awareness and reading acquisition. (Kame’enue, et. Al., 1997)

what is phonemic awareness
What is Phonemic Awareness?

The ability to hear, identify, and manipulate individual sounds phonemes

in spoken words.

why is phonemic awareness important
Why is Phonemic Awareness Important?
  • It improves students’ word reading and comprehension.
  • It helps students learn to spell.
stages of phonemic awareness
Stages of Phonemic Awareness
  • Early stage– use ears
  • Intermediate stage – hear sounds and represent them with letters
  • Final stage - draw a box for every letter in a word. This occurs when the child can hear most of the sounds and find letters to record those sounds.
signs of phonemic awareness
Signs of Phonemic Awareness
  • recognizing which words in a set of words start with the same sound
  • isolating and saying the first or last sound in a word
  • combining or blending the separate sounds in a word in order to say the word
  • breaking up or segmenting a word into its separate sounds.
examples of phonemic awareness skills
Examples of Phonemic Awareness Skills
  • What word am I trying to say? Tttt-ooooo-p.
  • What is the first sound in top?
  • What is the last sound in top?
  • What are all the sounds you hear in top?
distinctive sounds
Distinctive Sounds

banging on table opening drawer

blowing a whistle pouring a liquid

rubbing hands coughing

eating an apple crumpling paper

chewing hammering

writing with a pencil snapping fingers


folding paper clicking with tongue

cutting with scissors stamping

scratching slamming a book

smashing crackers stirring with a spoon

turning on a computer walking

tearing paper chewing gum

eating ice applauding

ringing a bell blowing nose

  • With the children's eyes closed, make a series of sounds. Then repeat the sequence, but omit one of the sounds. The children must identify the sound that has been omitted from the second sequence.
  • Invite the children to make sounds for their classmates to guess.

These games offer good opportunities to review, exercise, and evaluate children's use of ordinal terms, such as first, second, third, middle, last.


Use familiar stories or poems to develop the ability to attend to differences in what students expect to hear and what they actually hear.


Reverse Words Birthday happy to you

Around ring the rosies

Substitute Words Twinkle, twinkle orange star

Mary had a furry lamb

Swap Word Order Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle way the all

Old MacDonald farm a had

Swap Word Parts Dumpty Humpty wall on a sat

There was an old lady who fallowed a swy

Switch order of events Goldilocks broke the chair and then sat on it

  • Ask the children to hold two fingers horizontally under their chins, so they can feel the chin drop for each syllable.
  • Do this activity to a rhythmic chant, such as Bippity, bippity bumble bee, Tell me what your name should be.

(Point to a child; that child responds by giving his name. Class repeats name out loud. Continue with one of the following: clapping it, whispering it, or saying it silently)

  • Spread out pictures from two different sets, asking the children to identify the name and initial phoneme of each picture and to sort them into two piles accordingly.
  • Matching Game - Pass picture cards of objects or animals to the children, naming each picture and placing it face down on the table or carpet. Children take turns flipping pairs of pictures right side up and deciding if the initial sounds of the pictures' names are the same. If the initial sounds match, the child selects another pair; otherwise, another child takes a turn.
  • Help the children notice that the initial sound makes a big difference in the words' meanings by asking them to use each word in a sentence.
  • Call the children to line up by naming their first names without the initial sound (e.g., [J]-onathon). The children have to figure out whose name has been called and what sound is missing. You may want to save blends until later, such as (St) ephanie.
two sound words

day bee bow boo

hay fee doe jay

pie pea mow two

knee shoe

analysis activity
  • Choose a picture card.
  • Say the two phonemes slowly.
  • Place two different colored blocks under the picture.
  • Move each box (left to right) as the word is said.
  • Have students repeat with their own blocks.
synthesis game
  • Choose a picture card and lay it face down in front of student.
  • Name the picture phoneme by phoneme (e.g., t…o) as you move the blocks under the picture as you say the sounds.
  • Children repeat the phonemes as they move the blocks increasing their speed until they can identify the picture.
