Patterns and Categorizing

Patterns and Categorizing | Teaching Phonics - Phonological Awareness - Reading | Scoop.it
Even our youngest children are able to recognize patterns and use categories to process new information. Almost everything we see, hear, or touch contains details that our brain processes. Without realizing it, our brain is looking for what is new, what is different, and what has changed. New information is matched to a category that already exists in our mind.

Perceiving sound contrasts : before 1 year of age, or never - VivaLing | The language of their future | Teaching Phonics - Phonological Awareness - Reading | 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.
