Foundational Reading Lesson - Count the Phonemes in a Word, Grade 1

  • Activity 1 / Hungry Dragon Worksheet

    This fun and adorable dragon is hungry, and your child will strengthen phonological awareness abilities feeding him words that have two sounds. Use this free downloadable PDF to build practice using auditory discrimination skills to isolate sounds, and then continue to build fine motor skills with the traceable lines to appropriate words. Kids have a blast feeding the dragon and don't even realize they're working on reading skills!

  • Activity 2 / Finding the Sounds Worksheet

    This brightly colored free worksheet uses basic words and picture clues to help children name words, and then break them down into sounds they hear. Using auditory discrimination, children will strengthen their phonological awareness, which leads to fluency in later reading skills. They'll build confidence as new readers with the picture clues to help them read, and strengthen fine-motor skills as they check appropriate boxes.

Such a great app!
This was a really fun way to get my kids to practice their math. I usually struggle to get them into it and Kids Academy makes it easy.

Great for kids
Our 7 years old daughter loves reading activities and every off-line game Kids Academy offers. This is a very good app, I highly recommend it!

Daughter's favorite
Still a top favorite for our 7 year old. She loves earning her stars as she learns to trace letters and numbers. Coloring and the sounds are engaging and are on target for her age group and being Pre K.
