Dr. Adams has authored a number of empirically validated classroom resources, including Odyssey: A Curriculum for Thinking (Charlesbridge Publishing, 1986), which was originally developed for barrio students in Venezuela; Phonemic Awareness in Young Children: A Classroom Curriculum (Paul H. Brookes Publishing Co., 1998) on language and literacy basics for emergent readers and students with special needs; Open Court's 1995 edition of Collection for Young Scholars, a program for reading, writing, and literacy development for elementary school students; and Scholastic's System 44 (2009) and iRead (2013), technology-based programs for building literacy foundations. She has also served on the advisory board for several of the Public Broadcasting System's educational programs including Sesame Street and Between the Lions, for which she was Senior Literacy Advisor.

Dr. Adams spent most of her career with the think tank Bolt Beranek & Newman (BBN Technologies-"Where Wizards Stay up Late") in Cambridge, Massachusetts. From 2000 to 2007, she was Chief Scientist at Soliloquy Learning, which she cofounded with the goal of harnessing automatic speech recognition for helping students learn to read and read to learn.

This book was recommended to me by my sister (also a k teacher), and I used these phonemic awareness activities during the last school year -- not only did the activities help my whole class overall, but they also helped me identify which kids were struggling and needed more help. And they were fun for the kids, too, which made teaching it so much easier. My school has been buzzing about phonemic awareness and phonological awareness for a couple of years now, but we haven't had a good way to actually teach it directly until we used these activities. I highly recommend this book!

Excellent source of developmentally appropriate activities to make phonemic awareness fun. It has activities laid out for each separate area. It should be in the hands of all preK, K and grade 1 teachers, reading teachers, and special educators at even higher levels. A treasure!

If you are teaching kindergarten through second grade, you must have this and use it in your classroom. It has activities that covers every area of phonemic awareness. It gives you many activities for each section so your children will never get bored with your lessons. Uses all modalities. I can't say enough good things about this book.

I am a new teacher and I am trying to build up a library of resources. I bought this book hoping it would be helpful. I am so glad I purchased it. The activities are simple and concise, but they were developed with the children in mind. They will enrich your higher kids and strengthen your lower readers. Great for Kindergarten to intro basic phonics, super for first grade!! They will be fun to use in the classroom. The book is also FULL of information about phonics and linguistics. Do not hesitate purchasing this book.

This is the best curriculum I've seen in terms of scope, sequence, thoroughness, clarity and ease of use. The authors are all renowned experts in early literacy. Its big drawback is the time it takes to find appropriate, phonemically accurate pictures to use in the last third of the book. We teachers were thrilled to find that the Georgia Preschool Association has developed a CD of over 200 phonemically correct pictures to print out specifically to use with the curriculum. This curriculum is excellent! Children enjoy the activities while gaining a solid foundation for learning to read.

This book is a fair book. It has good activities but none of them are "ready to go", so there is a lot of prep. As a reading specialist and first grade teacher I prefer the books below. I use them on a daily basis and find them indispensable! They both come with ready to use activities that are motivating and fun! The kids absolutely love the activities!!
