Sample Phonemic Awareness Lessons

Smart Tutor’s Phonemic Awareness lessons help students learn to identify, think about, and work with individual sounds in spoken words. Audio-supported interactive lessons help students master key phonemic awareness skills including Isolation, Identity, Categorization, Rhyming, Blending, Segmentation, Deletion, Addition, and Substitution. Students learn common associate sounds and words with a variety of visual representations, develop listening skills, associate pictures with text labels. These lessons are especially appropriate for students with special needs ( ESE / Special Ed ), students learning English as a second language ( ELL / ESL / ESOL ), and struggling learners ( Title I / Transition students ).
