The primary purpose of phonological awareness training is to anchor students in the sound system of English to help prepare them to map the graphemic system onto a phonological system, a necessary step for successful reading acquisition. ASHA's (2001) guidelines suggest that good literacy instruction should be outcome-oriented, comprehensive, balanced, contextualized, age-appropriate, recursive, direct, explicit, intense, scaffolded, informative, and corrective. The Sourcebook series embodies these elements and is written for use with 3rd to 5th grade students. The third volume in the respected, popular Sourcebook of Phonological Awareness Activities series, this book provides activities for use with popular 3rd to 5th grade books such as Charlotte's Web, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, Henry Huggins, Sarah Plain and Tall, and The Indian in the Cupboard.
