eBook: Developing Phonological Awareness
Developing Phonological Awareness
Through play, games, rhyme and song
A resource to support Early Childhood Educators to create intentional opportunities for young children to develop their phonological awareness (shown to be connected to later reading success*). It focusses on the areas of phonological awareness that are typical for children between the ages of two and six years of age.
It’s packed with ideas for developing sound discrimination, syllable awareness, rhythm & rhyme, alliteration and oral blending & segmenting – all through playful games, songs and rhymes. We feel strongly that the best way to support young children’s development is to harness the potential in their natural ways of learning – through joyful play and connection with others.
