There are a number of useful resources and apps to help develop phonological and phonemic awareness



The free SPELD SA phonemic awareness tasks have been created for the purpose of helping students develop phonological awareness skills. They are structured using the same sequence of sounds taught in Jolly Phonics and can be used as a part of a class activity, small group work or intensive remedial program.  Each resource comes with an instruction sheet that gives clear and concise steps in how to use the resource, that parents, teachers and Learning Support staff can easily follow.

Reading Doctor, Spelling Sounds Pro and Reading Sounds Pro helps beginning and struggling readers to learn to spell. It is a fun, effective and scientifically based teaching tool that helps you to teach students to segment (break up) words into speech sounds and to then spell them using letter-sound knowledge.

Reading Doctor, Blending sounds Pro, Word Builder and Reading Sounds Pro helps beginning and struggling readers to use letter-sound knowledge to read words by blending (joining) speech sounds together.

The Reading Rockets library provides teachers with effective, research-based classroom strategies to help build and strengthen literacy skills in print awareness, phonological awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, and writing.
