Brilliant revision game, and easy to adapt to our own students' needs! I would have my 7-8 year-old students create their own 'cootie catchers' focusing on no more than two spelling patterns at any given time. Less is more! :)

Phonological awareness and reading: Review sheds new light

Phonological awareness and reading: Review sheds new light | Literacy Learning and Teaching | Scoop.it

By Dan Willingham


Melby-Lervåg et al. included 235 studies in their analysis and concluded that existing research suggests that all three—rime awareness, phoneme awareness, and size of verbal short-term memory—predict word reading but the largest effect is observed with phonemic awareness.  (In fact, the predictive value of verbal short-term memory is quite small.) 

The second important conclusion from this review concerns causality. All of these studies in the meta-analysis are correlational. Hence, one interpretation is that phonemic awareness is related to word reading skills because phonemic awareness is necessary for that skill. However, an equally viable interpretation is that reading changes phonemic awareness, so the association is observed because more skilled readers have undergone greater change.

Perceiving sound contrasts : before 1 year of age, or never - VivaLing | The language of their future | Literacy Learning and Teaching | Scoop.it
Babies are born universal listeners. In the first months of their lives, they can discriminate all the sounds produced by human beings. It is no small feat: you and I cannot. A typical Japanese adult is unable to hear the difference between an English /l/ and /r/. A typical English adult cannot detect the nuance …

This is the second perspective on Maslow's hierarchy I have seen in the past few weeks.  As we try to make learning more rigorous and more inclusive for all students the importance of meeting student needs in a variety of ways is very important.  This must include Social/emotional as well as technological.
