Important Points about Phonemic Awareness:
- Phonemic awareness can be taught and learned.
- Phonemic awareness can help students learn to read and spell.
- The relationship between phonemic awareness and learning to read and spell is reciprocal: having phonemic awareness helps children learn to read and spell; learning to read and spell words by working with letter-sound relationships improves children's phonemic awareness.
