									Phonological Awareness


      Melinda Carrillo
   Best Predictors of
   Reading Success
• Letter Knowledge

• Phonological Awareness

• Knowledge About Print
• Phonological Awareness
  The awareness of and the ability to manipulate language.

• Phonemic Awareness
  The understanding that speech is composed of individual sounds
  and the ability to manipulate those sounds.
• Phoneme
  The smallest unit of sound.

• Phonics
  A system of teaching reading and spelling through sound-symbol
• Morpheme
  The smallest meaningful unit of language.
    Letter Knowledge
A child who can recognize most letters
 with thorough confidence will have an
    easier time learning about letter
sounds and word spellings than a child
 who also has to work at distinguishing
         the individual letters.
                       Adams, 1990
Phonemic Awareness
Phonemic awareness is more highly
 related to learning to read than are
tests of general intelligence, reading
       readiness, and listening

                 Stanovich, 1993
   Phonemic Awareness
It is unlikely that children lacking phonemic
    awareness can benefit fully from phonics
    instruction since they do not understand
    what letters and spellings are suppose to

                     Juel, Griffith, & Gough, 1986

 Nursery Rhymes
     Sentence Completion
          “I see a frog,
                sitting on a ____.”
Phoneme Blending
       All Oral

Put the sounds together

Phoneme Segmentation
       All Oral

 Break the sounds apart
     Cat = /c/ /a/ /t/
    Lake = /l/ /a/ /k/
Phoneme Deletion
     All Oral
