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.
Phonological Awareness - Phoneme Segmenting and Blending
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.
Open Wide and Say Ahh
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.
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.
This learning exercise provides two differentiated versions of 3 tasks that challenges learners 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 learners 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
Final Phoneme Matching
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.
Final Phoneme Find
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.
Phoneme Go Fish
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.
Speech Sound Lesson Plan
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.
Phonemic Awareness With Technology
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.
Learning about Animals with "Three Blind Mice"
Blind mice, hungry mice, and mice peeking through a hole are all featured in a phonemic awareness lesson. Learners sing about and read stories about this clever rodent. They compare the size of different animals to the size of a mouse, count mice, and develop phonemic awareness by naming foods that begin with the letter "M."
Phoneme Split and Say
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.
Vowel Picture Sort
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.
Final Phoneme Spin
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.
Medial Phoneme Find
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.
Break and Make
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.
Rainbow Spelling: A Kinesthetic Approach to Encoding
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!
Phonemic Awareness, Say It and Move It
Learners 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.
Phoneme Position Sort
Kids make new words out of old ones by manipulating phonemes. They mix and match initial, medial, and final phonemes to change words like, cap into cup or head into bed. This is fun and builds strong pre-reading skills as well as phonemic awareness.
