What is Phonemic Awareness ?

Phonemic awareness is the ability to hear and manipulate individual phonemes. A phoneme is the smallest unit of sound that can differentiate meaning. For example ball is broken down into three phonemes, /b/ /a/ /l/.  Research has shown that phonemic awareness helps children with reading and spelling. Some useful links on the subject are listed below.

Below are some links to lists of books that build phonemic awareness.
