Phonemic Awareness, Data Organization & A Freebie

the importance of teaching phonemic awareness


We all know teaching letters and phonemic awareness is important, right?  But how to go about it and having the right materials to do it is sometimes hard.  Especially with phonemic awareness.  And what about keeping all that data organized?

I am the RtI coordinator for my school and data on these topics is important to me.  I assess all our kinder kids on letter & sound identification and phonemic awareness.  I needed a way to keep all this data organized. Both by class and by student.  

This is what I use to accomplish that organization and assessment.  It keeps me sane and from pulling out my hair wondering where everything is because it is all bound together neatly.


keep all your data assessment organized

beginning, middle, and end of the year assessment binder

This is a small sample of what is in this pack.  There are two covers.  The bottom one shows this all spiral bound so it is easier to flip through.  I also bound the letter cards so they would correspond to the order that I test on that is in the binder.  And I included beginning math skills like recognizing numbers, shapes, colors, etc.  You can bind those cards too.  It is all in there!  It seriously has made things easier for me!

What is not included are the phonemic awareness activities and assessments.  I included spaces for the assessment data of phonemic awareness.  Now I have all the activities created and I included the assessments for you to make it easier for you.  Who likes trying to track down assessments anyway?  

Counting Syllables:
counting syllables activities and assessments


Identify and Supply Rhymes:

Isolate Phonemes and Identify Common Phonemes:

All of these packs were created to pair with the binder.  There are spaces to record the scores for these activities/assessments.  They will make teaching and assessing specific phonemic awareness skills so much easier!

This FREEBIE also goes with the Kindergarten Assessment Binder.  It is a Concepts of Print assessment and there is a spot on the graphs in the binder for student scores just like for the other assessments.  I thought it might help some of you out.  Just click the picture to grab it!




If you want to see any of them, just click the pictures to be taken to my store.  Or click here for my store in general.

I hope this binder, activities, and assessments makes your life so much easier this school year!  Thanks for visiting with me today!!
