Phonological awareness activities are activities that increase children’s awareness of the sounds of language.

These activities include playing games and listening to stories, poems, and songs that involve rhyme, alliteration, sound matching, and emergent writing.

Emergent writing encourages children to  emergent forms of writing, such as scribble writing, random letter strings, and invented spelling.

To enhance your children’s phonological awareness of the letter A (which we learned about Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of last week), we participated in a variety of activities that supported this.

We inititally used tweezers and paper ants to create the letter A, and then we used playdoh to make the letter A.

In addition to strengthening phonological awareness, these activities also supported their fine motor skills.
