The phonemic awareness activities described in the following pages are arranged from informal to more formal activities. They can be used as whole class or small group activities with students in the emerging phase from pre-kindergarten to grade three. The informal activities would be the only ones used with many of the children in Pre-K and kindergarten

If "an apple a day will keep the doctor away", then perhaps a-rhyme-a-week will keep school failure at bay. WIL's A-Rhyme-a-Week phonological awareness program features 30 different nursery rhymes. The phonograms or "rimes" emphasized in our program were first identified by Richard Wylie and Donald Durrell in 1970. Examining a list of 1, 437 words commonly spoken by children in primary grades (Murphy, 1957), Wylie and Durrell identified 37 rimes that accounted for almost 500 words of Murphy's list. In determining the order of rhymes and rimes to present each week, we are following Fry's (1998) suggested consideration of frequency.
