Phonological Awareness Lessons
Teach students to notice, differentiate, think about, and manipulate sounds — from sounds of words to sounds of individual phonemes—during effective phonological awareness instruction. Reading A-Z's Phonological Awareness Lessons are organized from the simplest skills to the most difficult. Each lesson might include picture cards, a game, or a workmat, and suggests a supplemental Read-Aloud Book for extra practice. More About Phonological Awareness Lessons
