Teaching phonemes

A phoneme is the smallest unit of sound. A phoneme is the sound associated with a letter or group of letters (grapheme). Each different sound in a word is a phoneme.

While there are lots to get through, a little a day goes a long way! We’ve put together some tools for your daily phoneme practice.

Our Phonemes Chart provides a complete overview of phonemes and their corresponding graphemes. Refer to this simple chart anytime to make sure your daily phoneme practice is accurate.

Daily sound practice is a full list of phonemes with example words and recordings. Find the phoneme you want to focus on and scan the QR code to listen to the sound. It’s that simple!

These teaching tools will make your daily phoneme practice easy! Be sure to show us how you're using them in the classroom or at home by sharing with us!

Deep Dive

Read our report on the Science of Reading. Research-based reading instruction must incorporate the 5 pillars of reading: phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. This report provides an easy to understand overview of each of these pillars and explains the important connection between how the brain learns to read (the Neuroscience of Reading) and how we teach children to read (The Science of Reading Instruction). It also explains why helping children build connections between letters and sounds, through phonics and phonemic awareness, is so crucial for the developing reading mind. This report is perfect for sharing with colleagues and friends!
