Teaching Phonemic Awareness and Word Reading Skills

In this article from the International Dyslexia Association, Al Otaiba et al. emphasize the significance of evidence-based systematic and explicit instruction. They outline the typical process through which students grasp the alphabetic principle (the concept that words consist of distinct sounds). They also provide explanations of blending and segmenting instruction, accompanied by sample activities. The article also furnishes teachers with resources for explicit and systematic reading instruction as well as examples of explicit and systematic programs for teaching phonemic awareness and phonics.

This resource facilitates the progressive development of phoneme blending and segmenting abilities. It guides teachers in instruction methods for developing the understanding of the sound structure (K-Grade 1), up to using these skills to read and spell monosyllabic and multisyllabic words (Grade 3). **Distinct curriculum expectations are outlined for each of the four grades.
