Do your teachers need additional materials to support phonemic awareness instruction? Take a look at Learning List’s review of Heggerty’s Phonemic Awareness.
Heggerty’s Phonemic Awareness is a supplemental set of lessons to develop phonemic awareness for students in kindergarten and grade 1. Materials are available in digital format or in print with some resources available for download on the publisher’s website. Learning List recently reviewed the English and Spanish materials.
The material is intended to support foundational skills instruction. Each lesson includes eight phonemic awareness skills and two early literacy skills. The lessons are designed so that instruction is primarily oral, incorporating the use of hand motions to support student learning. The lessons are logically organized in the teacher’s manuals, and all required materials are included. The material is well organized and easy to use.
