Identifying where sounds sit in a word develops those early reading and spelling skills.
Guess the sound – build phonemic awareness
Watch the clip above as a warm-up activity and guess the sounds.
Talk about the separate sounds in words. “Do we hear /mmmm/ in the word mmmmoon? Do we hear /mmmm/ in the word cake? Is there a /k/ in cat? What is the first sound you hear in dog?”
Try walking around the block and seeing how may sounds you can hear!
