Emergent Literacy Design

 

Rationale:

            In order to read and spell words, children must understand that letters stand for sounds or "phonemes" and that these phonemes are mapped out in letters or "graphemes" in the spelling of words.  Before children can match letters to phonemes, they have to be able to recognize phonemes in spoken word contexts.  This lesson will help children identify the /p/ sound when they hear it.  They will learn to recognize /p/ by learning a meaningful representation of the sound and a letter symbol (p), and then practice finding /p/ in words.
