Research has shown that new readers need to practice phonological awareness every. single. day. But, if you’re like most teachers I know, the thought of adding even one more thing to your lesson plans can feel daunting – new lessons usually mean MORE prep and planning. But not this time! These phonological awareness daily warm ups make it so easy to build students’ foundation.
With just a click of the “print” button, you’ll have everything you need to work on phonological awareness all year long! No prep or planning required.
Try the sample below and then grab all 40 weeks of these warm ups on Teachers Pay Teachers!
What is Phonological Awareness?
The term “phonological awareness” is a fancy way of describing a students’ ability to hear and move around word parts.
Because it’s focused 100% on sound, we can do it with our eyes closed. Pretty cool, huh?!
Rhyming, syllable segmenting, and alliteration all fit under the “phonological awareness” umbrella.
And phonemic awareness does too! Although it sounds very similar to “phonological awareness”, phonemic awareness refers specifically to students’ ability to hear and move around the individual sounds in words.
For example, we might ask a child to name the sounds they hear in the word RAIN (r-ai-n) or we could ask a student to change the /b/ in BED to /r/ and then tell us the new word (red).
I’ve named a few phonological awareness skills here but there are even more! And the science of reading has shown us that it’s important to practice ALL of them.
That’s why I was so excited to create an easy way for you to do just that.
I never want you to have to take my word for it about how game changing these phonological awareness warm ups are – I really want you to see it for yourself.
