Mastering Phoneme Substitution

David Kilpatrick (2015)* says that phonemic manipulation skills continue to develop through 4th grade and that most curricula and assessments stop monitoring phonemic awareness in 1st grade.  Advanced phonemic awareness skills are essential for learning unfamiliar words. Because of the need to ensure that your students have mastered this critical skill, 95 Percent Group is providing a complimentary Phoneme Substitution Screener.

Phoneme substitution is the top level of phoneme manipulation and is critical for reading success.  Our screener is designed to determine if students in grades 1-4 have mastered phoneme substitution.
