A Phonemic Awareness Program Preparing Children for Reading
A phonemic awareness blending program, designed to prepare children for reading. Phonemic awareness is strongly associated with early literacy achievement. Within this program, the phonemic awareness skill of blending is targeted. Blending represents an immediate precursor to decoding ability. The colour card sets form the basis of short explicit instruction sessions. The scripted instructions provide clear guidelines on how to effectively teach blending. When this program is used in conjunction with screening (within the final page of the booklet) this program forms a significant component in a school’s preventative/early intervention strategy.
