Emergent Literacy

 

Rationale:

In order for children to be able to read and write, they must be able to distinguish the individual sounds in words.  These sounds are called phonemes.  Phonemes are the basic vocal gestures from which the spoken words of language are constructed.  It is essential that children learn these sounds while they are learning to read.  They need to be able to distinguish separate phonemes in words.  This lesson will help children master the /h/ in spoken words by participating in activities using /h/.
