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.
Students recognize the short vowel o in written and spoken language. Through matching and listening activities, they discriminate the vowel sound /o/ from other phonemes. Students identify the phoneme and letter in words and pictures.
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.
In this reading instructional activity, students chart the titles of five books they have read. Students write the titles of the books on the bands of the rainbow. This instructional activity prints out in black and white.
Students practice spelling words with the long e sounds using ee or ea. For this ee or ea lesson plan, students complete words using the ee or ea pattern, identify rhyming words, and write a rhyming poem using ee words. Using word and picture cards, students complete the words adding the missing ee or ea letters. Students will also have an opportunity to complete words by adding phonemes and graphemes at the end of words.
First graders study letters. In this phonemes lesson, 1st graders discover the sound the letter "P" makes. This is a lesson intended for one on one instruction with a hearing impaired child. The student identifies objects that begin with "p" in the activity. This lesson includes an assessment tool.
This learning exercise provides two differentiated versions of 3 tasks that challenges students to identify phonemes in spelling and reading. Task 1 asks students to split a given list of words into their appropriate phonemes; task 2 instructs students to sort the same list between words with 'oo' and words with 'ay'; lastly, in task 3, students must explain which letter patterns allow for the 'oo' and 'ay' phonemes. English Language Learners at various levels would absolutely benefit from these work
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.
Perfect for a learning center or independent practice, this phonics activity engages listening skills and concentration. Pre-readers listen to a teacher-made recording and use the provided worksheet to number the final phonemes they hear. Teacher script and work sheets are included.
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.
Students demonstrate how changing the initial sound of a word will change the whole word. They observe a teacher demonstration on how to click and drag on the computer, and explore various phonemic awareness websites and play online phonics games.
Students clap and count sounds when saying different words. In 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.
Students practice recognizing letters map out phonemes in spoken words dealing with the correspondence of the letter u=/u/. They practice the /u/ sound in both written and spoken words with the tongue twister "Up up up went the balloons and Uncle Ugg was upset," and letterboxes.
Stamp, slap, and clap! Emergent readers demonstrate their awareness of the initial, medial vowel, and final sounds in spoken, short vowel, single-syllable words with a stamp/slap/clap activity. After identifying the letters and sounds of the letters, class members indicate the proper position of phoneme with their actions. Word and resource lists, as well as a rubric, are included. Links to worksheets are also provided.
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.
