Instructional Activities > Phoneme-Grapheme Correspondences

As children are developing early literacy skills, they begin to associate the phonemes (speech sounds) they hear with the graphemes (letters and letter combinations) they see.  The activities in this section are designed to strengthen students’ phoneme-grapheme associations.

When teaching phoneme-grapheme correspondences, it’s important to model a pronunciation of each sound that can be used when blending sounds to make words.  This video provides a demonstration of blendable pronunciations of the most common sound for each letter.

The order in which you introduce new phoneme-grapheme correspondences should follow your school’s scope and sequence for foundational skills in reading.  If your school doesn’t have a scope and sequence, click here to download ours.
