Phonemic Awareness is concerned with the ability of the brain to process and manipulate sounds in words, i.e. to isolate all chunks of sounds (phonemes) in a given word in the correct order. Research has demonstrated repeatedly that in order for students to develop excellent reading and spelling skills they must also develop excellent phonemic awareness skills. These activities have been designed to provide fun ways for young students to practise playing with sounds in words.
