Describe 2-3 listening and speaking activities or strategies teachers could use to help students develop phonemic awareness and develop an understanding about sounds and symbol systems. Why is it important for the teacher to provide opportunities for integrating phonological awareness activities throughout the school day? Learning to read can be quite a complicated task, especially for young students and ELL students. Students must have an adequate foundational understanding of how sounds in words word. Phonemic awareness is the ability to identify, think about, and manipulate sounds in spoken speech. This is NOT the same as phonics. Phonemic awareness is actually a critical skill that is a precursor to reading letters. This is important for students to grasp the full understanding of the English Language and build and apply those critical thinking portions. Activities that are great with small children, as we begin the new school year are: 1. Listening a. The Listening Game b. Moo-Moo Where Are You?
