Here’s a quick and easy way to work on phonemic awareness!  Practice blending by substituting sounds in this familiar song:

Row, row, row your boat,

Gently down the stream,

Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,

Life is but a dream.

 

Bow, bow, bow your boat,

Gently down the stream,

Berrily, berrily, berrily, berrily,

Life is but a dream.

 

Zow, zow, zow your boat…zerrily, zerrily, zerrily, zerrily…

Mow, mow, mow your boat…merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily…

Repeat with other consonants.
