Phonemic Awareness

Phonological awareness means being able to hear the sounds that make up a word.  Children who have developed phonological awareness are able to recognize words that are similar, including words that rhyme like “cat” and “hat” and words that start with the same sound like “cat” and “car.” They are also able to recognize when words are different like “top” and “cow.” Children who have developed phonoligical awareness usually have an easier time learning to read.
