Research has documented phonological awareness as an important skill that good readers possess and is lacking in struggling readers. These cards engage students in the phonemic awareness task of segmentation. They help students compare two words, represented by pictures, and identify which sound is the same - beginning, middle, or ending. This activity is aligned to the Reading Foundational Skills: Phonological Awareness and Phonics and Word Recognition. The cards may be used with partners or as a teacher-led activity with a group of students.
