Phonological awareness skills are the foundation of beginning reading. Explore the developmental trajectory of phonological awareness to design activities that engage all learners in recognizing spoken sounds. Integrate movement, music, and play to support differentiated instruction to make phonological awareness skills accessible for all students. Using picture books as a spark, make playing with words and sounds a regular part of your classroom routine.
