Make teaching phonics easy with printable worksheets, activities, games and more designed for elementary ELA teachers.
The teaching of phonics, or phonemic awareness, helps students to understand that a letter can represent more than one sound and that a syllable must contain a vowel sound. Teaching students about phonological awareness will also help them to recognize and associate sounds of the letters of the alphabet, which will help them to improve their reading skills and efficiency. Use this extensive range of phonological awareness teaching resources, including worksheets, activities, and educational posters to develop the phonic knowledge of elementary school students.
