Phonological Awareness

By Lauren Ayube

Phonological awareness is an umbrella term that includes many skills and concepts having to do with the individual sounds, or phonemes, in spoken words. It is the ability to recognize and manipulate these sounds, and is the foundation for learning how to read.

  • Change the D to F and you get FOG.

  • Phoneme isolation is the ability to separate a single sound from the other sounds in a word.
  • Phoneme blending is when students are given the individual sounds and are able to blend them all together to say the word.
  • Phoneme segmentation is the opposite of blending. It is when students are given a word and are able to stretch the word out into its individual phonemes. 
  • Great job!
  • Phoneme manipulation consists of three things: the ability to add sounds, take away sounds, or substitute sounds.
