Phonemic awareness receives explicit attention in every Reading Recovery lesson with special attention given to hearing and recording sounds in words for writing. Clay acknowledges that “Every correct reading or writing of a word is yet another successful coordination of sound sequence with letter sequence” (Literacy Lessons Designed for Individuals, 2016, p.142) This session explores the integration of phonological awareness within authentic experiences of reading and writing.
