Reply To: Teaching Phonological Awareness
-I would like to begin phonemic awareness exercises in which my students will practice segmenting difficult words into individual sounds.
-Since I teach 6th grade, using some of the multisensory tools can be difficult. I can make it more interactive with the students by having them do some tactile word building. Hopefully, having some kind of textured papers to work with will enhance memory.
-What options and ideas are there to teach the most basic phonological awareness to 6th grade students who are reading at a 1st-2nd grade level?
