Improving Reading Readiness of At-Risk First Grade Students through Phonemic Awareness Training.
Byers, Linda B.
This project was developed and implemented to increase the target students' phonemic awareness in order to be able to make sense of the alphabetic principle and become successful independent readers. The objectives for the project were for 8 of the 10 target students to score 80% on the posttests of rhyme detection, blending, and the Yopp-Singer Test of Phoneme Segmentation. The target students were presented activities to develop each of the objectives during the 12-week implementation project. One of the three objectives was met by the end of the time frame.
