Reading: Putting it all Together

Phonemic Awareness - Phonemic awareness is the ability to notice, think about, and work with the individual sounds in spoken words.

Phonics - Phonics is the understanding that there is a predictable relationship between the sounds of spoken language, and the letters and spellings that represent those sounds in written language.
