Phonological awareness is a critical foundational literacy skill. In fact, multiple research studies indicate that phonological awareness skills are a strong predictor of a child’s success in learning to read. During this fun and engaging edWebinar, attendees will learn a variety of engaging instructional strategies to teach six essential phonological awareness skills along the phonological awareness continuum.
At the end of this learning experience, attendees will be able to:
- Distinguish the difference between phonological awareness and phonemic awareness
- Integrate fun phonological awareness lessons and activities to help emerging readers recognize, discriminate, blend, segment, and manipulate sounds
- Explicitly teach, model, and reinforce how to isolate, delete, and substitute phonemes
This edWebinar will be of interest to individuals working with children from preK to first grade.
