A phonemic awareness program for 4 to 5 year olds targeting CVC segmenting.

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 Spelling for 4 and 5 year olds, segmentation is targeted as segmentation represents an immediate precursor to CVC spelling ability. This resource contains coloured card sets recommended for explicit 5 minute instruction sessions and provide clear guidelines on how to effectively teach segmentation. 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 Spelling

The phonemic awareness pre-requisite skill involved in spelling simple regular CVC [consonant-vowel-consonant] words such as ‘tap’, ‘sun’ and ‘log’ is the skill of phonemic segmentation. E.g. ‘What sounds can you ‘hear’ (i.e. identify) in the word ‘peg’?’ Answer: ‘p’… ‘e’… ‘g’.

The simple but powerful learning activities in this book provide multiple opportunities for students to rehearse the core pre-requisite skill of blending. Aim for little but often (i.e. 3 – 5 minute activities several times a week) until the target skill has been established. Once established in addition to the alphabet sounds simple early reading tasks may be introduced.

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 page 10.
