Did you Know?

Phonemic awareness is a critical component of the reading circuit.

Phonemic awareness is the ability to isolate and manipulate individual phonemes in spoken words.

A phoneme is an individual speech sound. Examples of individual speech sounds include /sh/ (the first sound in the word sheep), /ow/ (the middle sound in the word house), and /f/ (the final sound in the word laugh).
