Fee, Fie, Phonemic Awareness: 130 Prereading Activities for Preschoolers.
Noting that phonemic awareness has been identified as an essential skill that prepares children for reading, this book contains 130 phonemic awareness activities suitable for small-group learning in preschools, prekindergarten programs, Head Start programs, child care centers, and home-based programs. Reflecting the teaching strategies of the High/Scope early childhood approach, the activities fall into five content categories: (1) identifying sounds; (2) building rhyme awareness; (3) building alliteration awareness; (4) recognizing letters; and (5) developing letter-sound awareness. Interspersed throughout the activity instructions are examples of teachers and other adults providing phonemic awareness activities with preschool children. Also included in the book are a chart to help teachers keep track of the activities experienced, items for assessing childrens early reading development using the High/Scope Child Observation Record, a materials list for each chapter, and a phonics fact sheet for parents.
