High/Scope distributed product-Endorsed by the High/Scope Early Childhood Reading Institute, this book focuses on phonemic awareness-the ability to recognize the smallest sound units that make up words-identified by reading experts as an essential skill that prepares children for reading. The 130 phonemic awareness activities included in the book are suitable for small-group learning in preschools, prekindergarten programs, Head Start programs, child care centers, and home-based programs. The activities are based on the latest scientific evidence about what children need to become confident and successful readers and writers. They also reflect the research-based, classroom-tested, and internationally recognized teaching strategies of the High/Scope early childhood approach. The activities fall into five content categories: identifying sounds, building rhyme awareness, building alliteration awareness, recognizing letters, and developing letter-sound awareness. The book offers more than enough activities to meet the standard of 20 hours of phonemic awareness practice recommended for all preschool children by the National Reading Panel and endorsed by the U. S. Department of Education.
