Still phoneme week

If this phoneme segmentation skill is still a little difficult for your child try segmenting words by syllables rather than phonemes. So, while working with tomorrow’s “Head, shoulders, knees and toes” activity, instead of finding phonemes in the word “cat” (touch your head for the sound of /c/, shoulders for the sound of /a/ and knees for the sound of /t/), supply the word “bubble.” Your child can touch his or her head for “”bub” and then shoulders for “ble.” Syllable segmentations is easier than phonemic segmentation, but is still a very important phonemic awareness skill!
