Item description

From simple listening games to more advanced exercises in rhyming, alliteration, and segmentation, this best-selling curriculum helps boost young learners' preliteracy skills in just 15-20 minutes a day.

Phonemic Awareness in Young Children complements any prereading program. Specifically targeting phonemic awareness — now known to be an important step to a child's early reading acquisition — this research-based program helps young children learn to distinguish individual sounds that make up words and affect their meanings.

With a developmental sequence of activities that follows a school year calendar, teachers can chose from a range of activities for their preschool, kindergarten, and first-grade classrooms. Plus, the curriculum includes an easy-to-use assessment test for screening up to 15 children at a time. This assessment not only helps to objectively estimate the general skill level of the class and identify children who may need additional testing but may also be repeated every 1-2 months to monitor progress. All children benefit because the curriculum accommodates individualized learning and teaching styles.

Here is everything a teacher needs:

  • Teaching objectives
  • Lesson plans and sample scripts
  • Activity adaptations
  • Troubleshooting guidelines
  • Suggested kindergarten and first-grade schedules
  • Informal, group screening
  • Guidelines for interpreting assessment test results
  • Recommendations for further assessment
  • An appendix of advanced language games

  • Educators will welcome this playful curricular supplement as an effective way to improve listening skills and foster essential preliteracy skills.
