Week 3 – Discussion 1 – Phonological Awareness According to our text and in the video Building Literacy Competencies in Early Childhood, exposure to stories, poetry, nursery rhymes, and songs encourages literacy development (Coats, 2013). I think a fun piece of literature to use to teach phonological awareness is Dr. Seuss’ There’s a Wocket in my Pocket. This book has a strong sense of rhythm, pattern, and predictability which will help young children with their early phonological awareness skills. Some fun activities for this book are: Activity 1: Picture walk through the book. Then read the book to the children with the rhyming words covered up with a sticky note and as your reading the book have the children guess what the rhyming word will be. Activity 2: Rhyming fun - Have the children find objects in the classroom and make up their own creatures that are living there following Dr. Suess’ pattern. Children can draw a picture of their creature as an extension of the activity.
