Professor Pup’s Phoneme Farm is a comprehensive, developmentally appropriate phonemic awareness curriculum for preschool children.
Set amidst a delightful farm setting, Professor Pup’s Phoneme Farm includes engaging, whimsical tablet based activities to help children experience and practice the full spectrum of phonemic awareness skills. These important skills include beginning, ending and medial phoneme recognition, blending/segmenting, rhyming and phoneme manipulation. On-going scaffolding is integrated in all activities through friendly verbal prompting from our instructional guide- Professor Pup. His support and guidance provide the immediate, individualized feedback that children need to experience success and build confidence.
Research-Based Approach to Instruction
Professor Pup’s Phoneme Farm is based on leading research in the field of early childhood education. The curriculum was developed using developmentally appropriate practices and evidence-based approaches that stress the significance of building early phonemic awareness skills through direct instruction.
Phoneme Farm’s design is built on a dynamic, comprehensive instructional sequence- Introduce, Explore, Create. Children’s use of Professor Pup’s Phoneme Farm is strategically inserted between collaborative, interactive teacher facilitated lessons. Taken together, the three- phase sequence provides an opportunity for children to learn, practice, and apply target phonological awareness skills in a developmentally appropriate manner.
