Chalk Talk: What Are Phonemes?
Many curricula mention the importance of teaching phonemic awareness as part of the process that teaches students how to read. But what are phonemes? They are usually defined as being the smallest unit of sound when it comes to speech. When combined with or subtracted from other phonemes and parts of speech, words can be formed. The English language has 42 phonemes and each has a unique symbol. Letters will represent these sounds and this is what we teach children to recognize when they are learning to read. For example, the word ‘rat’ contains 3 phonemes- ‘r’ ‘a’ and ‘t’. A child that has developed phonemic awareness will be able to understand how these letters sound when spoken or that replacing the ‘r’ phoneme with a ‘b’ phoneme changes the meaning of the word completely. Knowing how to manipulate these sounds is an essential part of communication.
