Need some extra resources to teach phonemic awareness to your kiddos in homeschool? Learning phonemes are a very important skill needed for reading. Phonemes are distinct units of sound in a specified language that distinguish one word from another. Examples are the p, b, d, and t in the English words pad, pat, bad, and bat.
A phoneme is a sound or a group of different sounds having the same function by speakers of the language. Another example of an English phoneme /k/, in words like cat, kit, scat, skit. Learning to listen for and manipulate phonemes or phonemic awareness is said to be one of the biggest predictors of success in learning to read.
You don’t have to stop here, we have many other free resources to practice phonemic awareness in your homeschool.
