A phonemic awareness program for 4 and 5 year olds targeting CVC blending.

One of the most significant pre-requisites for reading, spelling and writing is phonemic awareness. Phonemic awareness is strongly associated with early literacy achievement. In Preparing for reading for 4 and 5 year olds, blending is targeted as blending represents an immediate precursor to decoding ability. This resource contains coloured card sets recommended for explicit 5 minute instruction sessions and provide clear guidelines on how to effectively teach blending. These instructions can form the basis of assistant and parent education.

The PLD developmental 5 step phonological awareness process has been designed by Speech Pathologists for use in schools. When used in conjunction with PLD’s pre-literacy screening, this program forms a significant component in a school’s preventative early intervention strategy.

Phonemic Awareness Readiness for Reading
The phonemic awareness pre-requisite skill involved in reading simple regular CVC [consonant-vowel-consonant] words such as ‘fig’, ‘tin’ and ‘mat’ is the skill of blending.

  • First students must learn to blend at an onset and rime level. E.g. ‘Listen carefully and put these sounds together and guess this word:’ ‘f’ (one second pause) ‘ig’?’
  • Students then learn to blend at the phonemic or individual sound level: E.g. ‘Listen carefully and put these sounds together and guess this word; ‘m’ (one second pause) ‘a’ (one second pause) ‘t’? Answer: ‘mat’.
Features:
  • Instruction manual (24 pages)
  • 5 different blending activities with instructions
  • 125+ colour cards, 3 x game boards

This publication is mentioned within the Whole School Literacy Strategy booklet on pages 6 and 10.
