This resource for teachers, speech clinicians, and others working in preschool programs is organized using the order of oral acquisition of phonemes. Each phoneme is introduced according to the way children learn to produce sounds orally. The primary focus is on consonant digraphs. For each sound, the child learns to orally produce the phoneme and listen for the sound in isolated words. Every phoneme is introduced with a sound association activity using the phoneme sound rather than letter names. "Listening for Literacy" is loaded with dozens of activities so children will have fun with phonological awareness skills: Sammy Seal, Penny Pig, Billy Bird, and Zachary Zebra, to name just a few. Skills that are reinforced with this powerful resource book include: phonological awareness; sound production activities; rhyming; auditory discrimination; initial sound recognition and production; blending; segmentation. Each activity includes suggestions for parents to use with children at home.
