  • Phonological Awareness

    Phonological awareness is more than letter/sound recognition

    It is the awareness of groups of sounds or individual sounds within words.

    Every child is different, but children typically learn to separate words into syllables or beats before they can rhyme, blend sounds, or segment words.

    Try playing word games in the car or establishing a nightly bedtime reading ritual. Here are a few things to try:

    • Read Mother Goose rhymes and poetry to the children. Read tongue twisters and stories with alliteration. Picture books with repetitive, rhyming texts, such as “I Went Walking,” by Sue Williams and “Brown Bear, Brown Bear,” by Bill Martin Jr. build confidence and encourage participation.
    • Play word games. Say a word and then break it into syllables, using one of two techniques. Clap each syllable or place your hand under your chin and count the number of times your mouth opens to say a vowel. Play the “rubber band” game. Say a word and then stretch it out, stretching your hands apart as you say and prolong each sound. Then snap your hands back together, saying the word quickly.
