Description & Reviews


Hey Educators and Caregivers!

“Phonological awareness difficulties represent the most common source of word-level reading difficulties.” (Hulme, Bowyer-Crane, Carroll, Duff, & Snowling, 2012; Melby-Lervag, Hulme, & Halaas Lyster, 2012; Vellutino et al., 2004).

The most effective instructions across grade levels and learners is phoneme manipulation. This is supported by research from The National Reading Panel. Some people think that these types of activities are only beneficial for emergent readers in K and 1, but all students need systematic phonemic awareness instruction. It is needed and relied on by great readers past grade 1. “Phonological awareness continues to develop in typical readers beyond first grade.” (Kilpatrick, 2012a; Lipka et al. 2006, Wagner, Rogesen, Rashotte, & Pearson, 2013)

“Focusing early phonemic awareness instruction on blending, segmenting, and manipulating phonemes has been shown to produce greater improvements in phonemic awareness and future reading achievement in young children than time spent on rhyming and alliteration.”  (Reutzel, 2015)
