Phonemic Awareness

Phoneme Pronunciation - K/1

Why is this important?

This brief video demonstrates the correct pronunciation of phonemes. It is important to both model and teach the correct pronunciation of phonemes. Many adults accidentally add an ‘uh’ when saying sounds. This may seem innocuous, but it can make learning to read and write more challenging for students.

Take care to ensure you are ‘clipping’ each phoneme, and provide corrective feedback to students if they pronounce sounds incorrectly.
