Description : LEVEL: Grades PreK-1 A Feast of Rhyme, Rhythm, and Song presents an interactive and engaging approach to teaching phonemic awareness - an essential foundation for later reading success. Using sound, music, and rhythm activities, young children develop the ability to hear "inside" a word - to hear specific sounds, identify the sequence of sounds in words, and understand the role sounds, or phonemes, play in word recognition. Lessons are presented sequentially, through the developmental steps involved in acquiring phonemic awareness. The process begins with the rudimentary awareness that sounds exist, and progresses in complexity to the final insight that sounds within words can be manipulated, deleted, replaced, or added. In this resource, you will find: - easy-to-follow, step-by-step lesson plans - variations for or extensions of the activities - ongoing assessment for each lesson - notations and lyrics for all the songs - templates for a full set of picture cards on CD - a Phonemic Awareness Assessment Tool - an outline of music-content standards applicable to most provinces (and states) The authors of A Feast of Rhyme, Rhythm, and Song believe that children who have experienced the joyful phonemic awareness and music activities contained in this book will be primed and ready for this next step in the remarkable journey of learning to read.
