Reading 101 ~ Phonemic Awareness ~ Part 4 ~ Older Students

on June 17, 2014

 

What About Older Students?PA Part4

This question was asked several times last week.  Older students who lack a firm grasp of phonemic awareness need to be taught these important skills or have a thorough review of them until mastery is achieved.  The same things you teach to a young child can be taught to an older child as well.  Remember, it’s all done orally, so there are no “kindergarten” texts or worksheets to make them feel badly for having to review or learn these foundational skills.  I mentioned in the introduction that phonemic awareness activities are a big part of an intervention plan for those diagnosed with an auditory processing disorder. These activities are for any age. Though maximum benefit is achieved by learning these skills early on, they will help a struggling reader at any age.

The next post in this series will address how to assess your child’s phonemic awareness skills. Stay tuned! 

Happy Reading! Kay
