Phonemic Awareness Instructional Strategies
- Have students break their names apart into individual sounds
- Have children that have the same sound at the beginning of their names stand up, say different sounds and have students say their names beginning with that sound
- Encourage phonics spelling
- have students write the sounds they hear when they are writing, don't worry about correct spelling, focus on the sounds
- Clap syllables
- Use the students' names to clap how many syllables are in each name
- Read rhyming books or nursery rhymes
- Use a slinky to stretch out a word and have them guess the word you are saying
- Have the students choose a word and stretch out the word into its individual sounds and have you guess the word
It's Important to keep things fun and students engaged.
