Getting Ready to Read directly addresses the phonological needs of preschool students, emergent readers, and English-language learners. The center activities in this book help children learn how to analyze and apply the five levels of phonemic awareness (rhythm and rhyme, parts of a word, sequence of sounds, separation of sounds, and manipulation of sounds) in isolation before applying them to written language. Each easy-to-prepare activity is presented pictorially for children to follow and in print for a parent to read when the activity is sent home for extra practice. As children practice and master the phonological skills presented in this book, they will be ready to read! Book jacket.
Help prepare your child for reading by strengthening their phonemic awareness, or awareness of individual letter sounds. Includes reproducible pages.
