Phonemic awareness

I found this article to be very moving. I think that too often parents and some teachers do not
Give children enough credit for the work that they are producing in class simply because it may not look the way that they had hoped. I think that the article did a great job of talking about words that children may spell incorrectly or sentences that may not make sense. The thing to remember is that these children are still trying to communicate. They are conveying their feelings in a way that they understand. Even though we may not be able to read what they are writing does not mean that it is not writing! As teachers we also need to make sure that parents are encouraging of the phonemic awareness practices. Even when children. Recognizing spacing between words we should praise them for the strides that they are making
