AUTHOR The Phonologics Phonological Awareness program was developed by a certified Speech Language Pathologist with 35+ years of clinical experience in University and Public School settings.
DESCRIPTION Let your child get a jump start on reading literacy. Phonological Awareness is a foundation reading skill of great importance. Help your child learn and strengthen phonological awareness with these engag
ing and fun educational games.
Phonological awareness holds predictive power in childrens later reading proficiency and is the strongest single determinant of the success they will experience in learning to read.
Phonological Awareness is the awareness that spoken sentences, syllables, and words can be divided into smaller units. Phonemic Awareness is the awareness of individual sounds in words.
Phonological awareness is NOT phonics. Phonics involves attaching the letters to sounds.
Phonological awareness PRECEDES phonics.
DEMONSTRATED SUCCESS These programs have been used successfully with normally developing readers in grades preschool-6, children with learning disabilities and dyslexia, children with poor phonological processing skills, children with spoken language and expressive phonological impairments, children across various socioeconomic levels, and children learning English as a second language.
NATIONAL READING PANEL According to NRP findings, the inclusion of phonemic awareness training in phonics instruction is a key component contributing to its effectiveness in teaching children to read. Also, success in phonics, spelling, word recognition, reading, and writing skills is dependent upon a solid foundation of phonemic awareness skills.
COMMON CORE STATE STANDARDS Programs meet all CCSS for phonological/phonemic awareness included in the reading standards as a foundational skill for grades K-5. http://www.corestandards.org/
