Phonological and Phonemic Awareness
Early writing opportunities and intentionally designed experiences support children to grow as both writers and readers. Creating words gives a new form of representation and voice to a child.
Children are surrounded by environmental print. They begin to ‘read’ this print at an early age through repetitive exposure and use it to construct knowledge and make sense of their world.
The I Spy Game is a foundational initial phoneme game, setting the stage formore formalized targeted experiences. It is played in a small group or individually.
How do we build phonological awareness? Active Listening! Active listening games teach children to listen carefully and analytically to sounds in their environment.
