Please take a seat at a table with materials.

today s class
Today’s Class
  • Learn about alphabet recognition: how to teach it and how to assess it
  • Examine phonological awareness: what does it include? Why is it important? How do you teach it? How do you assess it?
five components of reading
Five Components of Reading
  • Phonemic Awareness
    • Ability to orally compose a sequence of sounds and manipulate these sounds to form words
  • Phonics
    • Ability to recognize the relation between the written language and the spoken language
  • Oral Guided Reading
    • Practice with guidance from a more skilled reader
  • Fluency
    • Ability to read orally with speed and accuracy
  • Vocabulary
    • Ability to use words orally and in written communication by applying word meaning effectively
  • Comprehension
    • Ability to apply meaning to what is read

1. What words can you think of that begin with the letters of your first name? Can you think of words that describe you?

  • What is an “act” in a play?

3. As I read, make the letters with your body.

  • Can you act out the letters?
  • Can you illustrate a letter?

6. Could we make our own innovation, and go through the same process?


alphabetic principle
Alphabetic Principle:

The ability to associate sounds with letters and use these sounds to form words.

  • Letter names
  • Letter shapes or forms
  • Letter sounds
alphabet recognition is important because
Alphabet recognition is important because…
  • Students who know letters of the alphabet have

more success learning about letter sounds.

  • Research indicates that letter/sound knowledge is a prerequisite to recognizing words.
  • Because our language is alphabetic, decoding is an essential and primary means of recognizing words.
the alphabetic principle how do you teach it
The alphabetic principle: How do you teach it?
  • The name of this letter is _____ .
  • The sound this letter makes is _____ .
  • What sound does this letter make with your mouth?
  • The way you make this letter is _____ .
activities to develop alphabet recognition
Activities to Develop Alphabet Recognition
  • Reading ABC books
  • Singing songs with alphabet names
  • Environmental print, including own name
  • Playing, reading, and writing uppercase/lowercase letters
  • Magnetic, foam, plastic, tracer, stamp letters
  • Matching letters in words
when to teach the alphabet
When to teach the alphabet
  • As a kindergarten/first grade teacher, what parts of the day seem most conducive to address the alphabetic principle?
  • Must children “know the alphabet” in order to read?
  • Or is “knowing the alphabet” primarily a spelling skill?
connections to the r i c a
Connections to the R.I.C.A
  • What did you find out?
  • How does the R.I.C.A. assess what you know and understand about Concepts about Print and the Alphabetic Principle?

phonological awareness
Phonological Awareness
  • Phoneme

c/a/t vs. r/a/t

  • Phonemic awareness
  • Phonemic awareness vs. phonics
  • Phonological awareness
why is it important
Why is it important?
  • Helps Ss understand…

Letters represent sounds in oral language

Blend to read words

Segment to spell

  • Minimal level needed in order to benefit from phonics instruction
  • Reading instruction
developing phonological awareness
Developing Phonological Awareness
  • Sequence:

- rhymes

- words vs. sentences

- syllables

- phonemes

…onset and rimes (c/at, l/ot, r/ing)

…initial, final, medial
