#052 The Literacy Big 6 Series – 2. Phonemic Awareness

Research shows that Phonemic Awareness is a strong predictor of long term reading and spelling success. “It can predict literacy performance more accurately than intelligence, vocabulary knowledge and socio economic status” (Gillon, 2004)

Episode #52 takes a close look at Phonemic Awareness, as this skill is a very crucial component that many teachers and commercial programs often overlook.

While we use our eyes to read, the ​true starting point for reading is ​speech sounds​Phonemic awareness is 100% auditory​, meaning it is only related to the sounds a letter makes, or the sounds letters make together in a word.

Tune in as I unpack the 8 core phonemic awareness skills and load you up with practical strategies and explanations.
