The purpose of this study was to see how the strategies of phonemic awareness develop the Emergent Reader’s reading ability. The students’ level of phonemic awareness varied among blending, segmentation and sound deletion. Data was collected through observations teacher and student one-to-one conferencing, and interviews with the literacy coach and speech pathologist. The findings showed that there were three specific behaviors of phonemic awareness: sound identification, repetition, and application of strategies in reading. The results indicated it is essential that students acquire phonemic awareness skills to develop their reading ability. Students need instruction and/or intervention from trained teachers to support the strategies efficiently.
