Phonological Awareness Practice Activities

Phonological Awareness Practice Activities



Description: Pick a phonological awareness concept, any phonological awareness concept!  Choose one to start with and then run the child through these three exercises.  If the child struggles with one of the exercises, stay there for a while.  Let’s use segmenting words into syllables as our example.  However, you can use this format for any of the processes (like rhyming, blending, etc.).

  • Exercise 1: Listening – Have the child listen to the skill as you demonstrate it.  For syllable segmentation, you would want to show the child how to break the words into syllables.  You could clap them out and count how many syllables are in each word.
  • Exercise 2: Do It Yourself – How it’s time for the child to try.  Give the child a word and let them give it a try.  For this syllable segmentation, you’ll want to start with two-syllable words for now.  Once the child can do that very well, move on to the next exercise.
  • Exercise 3: Make it Harder – Once the child has the hang of the easiest version of the skill, you can make it harder.  For syllable segmentation, we’ll work on 3- and 4- syllable words.

You can make up examples and increase the difficulty yourself, or use the pre-made worksheets that we’ve already created for the various phonological awareness skills.
