Phonological awareness is the ability to notice, identify and manipulate the sounds of one’s speech and is recognised as a crucial precursor to formal reading. This webinar will address the what, the why, and the how of phonological awareness, with a particular focus on phonemic awareness.
Jennifer will share lots of useful phonological awareness resources to implement in the infant classes.
