Most prereading activities concern what educators define as "phonological awareness" which is the ability to hear and isolate specific sounds (called phonemes) in a word. When a child has developed strong phonological awareness skills, they will be able to split words up into their separate speech sounds, which makes spelling much easier. Phonological awareness also enables children to match the correct sounds to the letters they see and thus read words or combine sounds to make new words.
The book "Developing graphophonological awareness" comprises:
- 136 worksheets,
- 5 levels of difficulty,
- rhyme activities,
- activities for identifying words,
