Phonemic Awareness: Information, Resources and Freebies

If you are like me, you may have just found out that you have a group of students who need more phonemic awareness support at the start of first grade. Here are some of the great links I found that have helped me educate myself and download resources (most for free!) to get me started. There is even a website that is intended for parents wanting to teach phonemic awareness to their child, with lots of descriptive activities! Feel free to pin this so that others looking for phonemic awareness resources can benefit as well.
