Literacy info to adults:

#1: We talked about the early literacy skill phonological awareness, which is the ability to hear and manipulate the smaller sounds in words

#2: Make up silly words by changing the first sound in a word: milk, nilk, pilk, rilk, filk.  It’s OK if the words are nonsense words, you just want to demonstrate how sounds can be manipulated

#3:  Play with and help your child hear the syllables in words.  For example, say words with a pause between the syllables (rab it) and have your child guess what word you are saying.
