Question:

What is the difference between phonics and phonemic awareness?

Gloria S.
Answer:

Phonemic awareness involves the teaching of sounds, with no print involved. Students learn to orally segment, blend, manipulate, and isolate sounds in words. Phonics is the relationship between sounds and symbols and involves print. It involves rhyme, alliteration, counting words in a sentence, and syllables as well as understanding that letters represent sounds.

Answer:

Learning vocabulary is critical in a child's reading development and for understanding text. While much of the vocabulary is learned indirectly, there are key words that are learned directly by being taught explicitly. This is important to comprehension development.
