Children who can not distinguish and manipulate the sounds within spoken words have difficulty recognizing and learning the necessary print=sound relationship that is critical to proficient reading and spelling success.
How do you teach phonics skills?
5 Simple Ways To Build Phonics Skills and Phonemic Awareness
- Sound and Picture Match-Up.

It requires children to notice how letters represent sounds. Children who lack phonemic awareness skills do not understand what letters represent.
How can phonemic awareness be assessed?
Phonemic Awareness skills can be assessed using standardized measures. The Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills (DIBELS) assessment system provides two measures that can be used to assess phonemic segmentation skills, Initial Sounds Fluency (ISF) and Phonemic Segmentation Fluency (PSF).
What are phonemic awareness skills?
Phonemic awareness is the ability to notice, think about, and work with the individual sounds (phonemes) in spoken words. This includes blending sounds into words, segmenting words into sounds, and deleting and playing with the sounds in spoken words.
