Phonological Awareness Skills

Do you know how to teach all the phonological awareness skills?

To help with segmenting, the best indicator of reading ability, I love to make pictures and cut them apart based on the sounds. The students move them as they say each sound.

Check out all the skills needed to make great readers but remember: 

  • Do 1 activity at a time!
  • Work  in small groups!
  • Sub student names from your class!
Here are all the skills!
