Phonological Awareness Centers for K-2
Make phonological awareness FUN for your students with these engaging phonological awareness centers! This pack covers tons of phonological awareness skills, including rhyming, syllables, initial sounds, onset and rime, ending sounds, short and long vowel sounds, digraphs, consonant blends, glued sounds, r-controlled vowels, diphthongs, and segmenting and blending.
Many phonological awareness activities are teacher-led listening and speaking drills. These types of activities are important, but we also want our students to continue practicing on their own, even when you’re not with them!
This is where these phonological awareness centers come in. After you work on a skill through listening and speaking (like isolating initial sounds, for example), then students can continue practicing independently with these engaging games and activities.
These phonological awareness centers include a variety of activity options for each skill, including: cut-and-paste picture sorts, hands-on sorts, puzzles, clip cards, board games, memory games, worksheets and more. Whether you need something no-prep or hands-on, a partner game or a solo game, this pack has you covered!
