This phonemic awareness game is very similar to the classic card game war; partners divide picture cards, each taking half (included). They place one card face-up at a time and segment the phonemes aloud. Whoever has the most phonemes takes the cards. In the case of a tie, they play the round similarly to war. Note kids may not know what some of these images are, and this may cause discrepancy among partners. Consider displaying the cards with labels somewhere in the classroom. Cards include two, three, four, five, and six-phoneme words.
Have your young learners interact with phonemes through this tactile plan! Each learner will have a colored mat where they connect different phonemes to create words. The best part is that they can self-correct easily as they spell! 
Scholars participate in activities to increase phonemic awareness. They are assessed and play games related to phonemic awareness. Then they participate in a turtle talk and Itty Bitty Bit game. Games and activities are given.
Students recognize the short vowel o in written and spoken language. Through matching and listening activities, students discriminate the short vowel o from other short vowel sounds. They associate the phoneme with its letter representation and identify the phoneme /o/ in various words and phrases.
Early readers play a board game to practice segmenting phonemes. Each child determines how many spaces to move by choosing a picture, saying the name of the object on the card, then counting the phonemes they say. Board game and picture cards are included.
First graders study letters. In this phonemes instructional activity, 1st graders discover the sound the letter "P" makes. This is a instructional activity intended for one on one instruction with a hearing impaired child. The student identifies objects that begin with "p" in the activity. This instructional activity includes an assessment tool.
Little learners identify final phonemes found in various words. They play a game where they pick a card, say the name of the object on the card, identify the final phoneme, then match it to an image with the same final phoneme. Whoever fills up their picture pyramid first wins the game. Everything is included.
Reading readiness can be a fun skill to foster. Little ones manipulate phonemes to change one word into another. They use pick picture cards, say the name of the object on the card, then change the final phoneme to create a new word. They then find the picture card that represents their new word.
Emergent readers use the illustrated templates provided with this resource to practice segmenting words into phonemes and blending phonemes together into words. Additional templates provide opportunities to identify similar initial, final, and medial phonemes. Objectives, materials lists, and activity directions are also included.
Go fishing for initial sounds with this engaging phoneme game! Similar to the card game Go Fish, pairs use picture cards and try to match initial sounds. They set aside any pictures that are a match and ask their partner for specific sounds. They may get a match or they may go fishing in the stack of picture cards. There are 36 cards to cut out here, but anticipate a challenge; kids may not know what the intended word is. Consider displaying a chart showing what each picture is depicting.
Looking for an auditory approach to phoneme manipulation? You'll find everything you need here for an independent practice activity to get youngsters changing initial, medial, and final phonemes to create new words. They begin with a chart and a set of cut-out images (included). Listening to a recording or live voice, kids following directives for manipulating each word. For example, they take the word sock and remove the s, replacing it with an r to get rock. When they've figured out the new word, kids glue the new image beside the first image. The transcript is included here for you.
Students clap and count sounds when saying different words. For this phonemic awareness lesson plan, students move bingo chips around when hearing a certain number of sounds in words.
Sound sorting can be a fun way to get little ones phonologically prepared for a life of reading. In this activity they sort picture cards based on the long or short vowel sound they make when said aloud. There are lead pictures and several pictures to sort included. Just print on card stock, laminate, and let the learning begin. 
Break and make is a game that little ones can play to build phonemic awareness and strong phoneme blending skills. In pairs, they take turns testing to see if they can guess the image on the card based on the word segment sounds given. One child break the word into phoneme segments and then other puts the word back together through blending.
Little ones are provided with all the tools needed to begin segmenting phonemes. There are twenty Elkonin box picture cards, five blank Elkonin box cards, and full instructions on how to help pre-readers practice splitting and saying phonemes into segments. They place a counter in each box to represent the phonetic segment they say. Fish is broken into /fi/ /i/ /sh/ so it gets three counters. A great activity to build strong phonetic awareness.
Segmenting words into different phonemes helps kids on the road to reading and writing. Have some fun with this spinner game which includes all the print-outs you will need. Simply assemble the spinner using a brad and lay out the picture cards face-up. In a small group, learners take turns spinning and saying the word the arrow lands on. They identify the final sound (initial sound would also work) and find a picture card with the same final sound. Encourage verbalizing as they find the matching word.
Help kids isolate medial sounds using this listening activity. They use a visual graphic organizer (included) to match medial phonemes to corresponding pictures. They can do this at a listening center or with a live speaker. There is a script for you to use either way. As they listen to each medial sound, they mark the picture with a number. Make sure kids know what these images are, as they be confused by synonyms.
First graders listen closely as their teacher sounds out a variety of words, one phoneme at a time. They then practice blending sounds to create words on their own. Tip: While you sound out words have your class write down each phoneme (letter) you sound out so they can build the connection between phonics and writing.
Young scholars make the connection between grapheme's and phonemes to become fluent readers. This lesson focuses on o=/o/ in spoken and written words. They read the book, "Doc in the Fog," by Educational Insights and view various pictures of a frog, pot, etc.
First graders study letters. In this phoneme activity, 1st graders discover the appropriate way to pronounce the letter "u." This lesson is intended for one on one instruction with a hearing impaired student. The students is instructed how to make the "u" sound and participates in a related activity after. This lesson includes a form for assessment and a homework activity.
