    Phonemic awareness
    By Sue W.

    One thing we have been using more extensively the last year in our Title I remedial reading for 1st through 3rd graders is starting out with a phonemic awareness inventory. It's hard to teach phonics and not as effective when kids aren't able to recognize rhyming words and add another, when they can't match initial or final sounds or substitute or blend sounds. For so long we have assumed kids have those prereading skills but it has made a great deal of difference to concentrate on those skills to give them a boost. There are good sources of information on these skills.
    Creative Teaching Press has songs and rhymes on CDs. I have a couple of great books at school, but can't get in to check on authors, or publishers because of remodeling going on.
