The Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts include Foundational Skills for Reading. These standards are directed toward fostering students’ understanding and working knowledge of concepts of print and the alphabetic principle. These foundational skills are necessary for students to develop into successful and lifelong readers. The Kindergarten and 1st grade Reading Foundational Skills include Phonological Awareness Standards, focusing our students’ learning on demonstrating an understanding of spoken words, syllables, and phonemes (CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RF.K.2).
Literacy Resources' Phonemic Awareness curriculum is aligned to these standards, and provides repeated practice for students with these specific skills, allowing teachers multiple opportunities to measure student progress. The weekly lesson plans included in the Kindergarten and primary curriculum also include activities incorporating additional phonological awareness skills that go beyond the expectations of Common Core.
