Emergent Literacy: Phonemic Awareness
This resource was created to support the literacy development of all emergent readers, with special considerations and adaptions made for the children who have complex communication needs (CCN). Literacy can be incredibly difficult for these children due to a number of factors including difficulties with speech, phonological representations, language and working memory. This resource specifically targets phonemic awareness; a skill which (along with knowledge of letters and sounds) is highly predictive of success in word reading and spelling (Carroll & Snowling, 2004). It is designed to be integrated into a holistic programme for literacy development which includes guided reading, self-selected reading, writing activities, and incidental teaching around print concepts, and phonemic awareness.
This resource is ideal for any children who are beginning readers. It is ideal for use in the primary school classroom environment, special schools, preschools, and for independent use by parents, literacy teachers, and Speech Language Therapists.
This resource was designed to be low-no prep. It can be used digitally, and in print.
