Slide1Phonological Awareness:Bringing the Sounds into the Classroom Presented by: Sherlene Sharpless & Tiffany Holloway (a.m. sessions) Africa Hakeem & Kelly Oglesby (p.m. sessions)

Slide3Let’s Use Our Time Wisely!1. Welcome and greet 2. The “Big Five” of Reading 3. What is Phonological Awareness? 4. Phonological Awareness vs. Phonics 5. Make-n-Take - 5 items for your classroom: 1.  Initial Sound Card Games 2.  Picture Match for Initial Consonant Game 3.  Word Family Rhyme Game          4.  A to Z Picture Cards 5.  Letter Monster Activity

Slide4The Big Five of Reading1.  Phonemic Awareness 2.  Phonics 3.  Fluency 4.  Vocabulary 5.  Comprehension These  are  considered  the  core  elements  of successful  classroom  reading  instruction.   The  idea of  a  sixth  component  has  been  suggested  due  to  it being  the  culmination  of  the  first  five.   The suggested  sixth  component  would  be  called Written  Expression.

Slide5What is Phonological Awareness?Phonological  Awareness  is  defined  as  one’s  sensitivity  to,  or explicit  awareness  of,  the  phonological  structure  of  words  in  one’s language.  It  encompasses  an  awareness  of  individual  words  in sentences,  syllables,  and  onset  and  rime  segments  as  well  as awareness  of  individual  phonemes  in  words.  Phonological Awareness  is  considered  an  “umbrella”  or  broad  term,  which covers  aspects  of  sound  identification  and  manipulation  in  spoken language.  Activities  in  Phonological  Awareness  are  based  on  a progression  of  skill  difficulty  (i.e.,  rhyme,  alliteration,  sentence segmentation,  syllable,  onset  and  rime,  and  phonemes).  The  goal of  Phonological  Awareness  instruction  is  to  develop  an  awareness that  words  are  composed  of  individual  sounds,  or  phonemes,  and to  develop  the  ability  to  manipulate  sounds  in  words.

Slide6RhymeStudents  practice  recognizing  and  producing  words  that  rhyme. Alliteration Students  practice  repeating  and  producing  alliterative  phrases. Sentence  Segmentation Students  practice  segmenting  sentences  into  words. Syllables Students  practice  blending  and  segmenting  syllables  in  words. Onset  and  Rime Students  practice  identifying  the  initial  consonant  or  consonants (onset)  and  the  vowel  and  any  consonants  that  follow  it  (rime). Phonemes         Students  practice  blending,  segmenting,  manipulating,  and                        deleting  the  individual  phonemes  (sounds)  in  words. Phonological  Awareness  Examples

Slide8Phonological Awareness vs. PhonicsPhonics  is  the  study  of  the  relationship between  letters  and  the  sounds  they  represent;  it  is also  used  to  describe  reading  instruction  that teaches  sound-symbol  correspondences.  The  goal of  Phonics  instruction  is  to  help  children  use  the sound-symbol  relationship  to  read  and  write  words. Phonological  awareness  is  an encompassing  term  that  involves  working  with  the sounds  of  language  at  the  word,  syllable,  and phoneme  level.  Phonics  is  used  to  describe  the  skills and  generalizations  readers  need  to  relate  printed symbols  back  to  the  printed  word.   Phonological awareness  is  a  more  fundamental,  underlying   skill necessary  for  successful  “phonics”  skill development.
