What is Phonological/Phonemic Awareness?

According to http://www.phonologicalawareness.org, Phonological awareness is the awareness of sounds in a language; awareness of rhymes; awareness that sentences can be broken down into words, syllables, and sounds; ability to talk about, reflect upon, and manipulate sounds; the ability to understand the relationship between written and spoken language

According to Gillon (2004), “Phoneme awareness performance is a strong predictor of long-term reading and spelling success and can predict literacy performance more accurately than variables such as intelligence, vocabulary knowledge, and socioeconomic status” (p. 57)
