This activity seems so obvious it’s easy to look past it. Don’t! This super effective yet super simple activity helps develop strong phonemic awareness. You can do it anywhere since it needs no materials!

Activity Tips:
Make a list of words for the activity.
Say the clearest sound possible, try not to mix any other sounds with the letter sound.
After a few tries, do it together.

Too easy or too hard?
If it’s too easy, add in a consonant blend at the beginning like “slip” or end like “rust.”
If it’s too hard, just say the first sound in each word.
