K-3 Early Literacy - Phonological & Phonemic Awareness
Tuesday, February 13, 2018
Topic: Behavior & Climate
Sponsored by: SST 3
Description: Phonemic awareness is the ability to hear and manipulate individual spoken sounds or phonemes within words. It includes the understanding that the phonemes of spoken language work together to make words and can be taken apart to spell words. To benefit from phonics instruction, students must be able to hear phonemes within words in order to identify the letters that correspond with the individual phonemes. 


High quality phonemic awareness instruction is essential for all students but particularly for those at risk of reading failure.  In this professional development you will learn the relationship of phonemic awareness to early reading skills, the developmental continuum of phonemic awareness skills and which of these skills are the most important and when they should be taught.  You will also explore several instruments that can be used to assess phonemic awareness skills and diagnose difficulties. Finally, you will have the opportunity to engage with research-based multi-sensory instructional strategies that you can use in your classroom. 

Audience: K-3 teachers, intervention specialists, instructional coaches and administrators.
