Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The understanding that words are composed of letters and that there is a relationship between printed letters and spoken sounds is called?

    • A.

      The alphabetic principle

    • B.

      Graphophonemic knowldge

    Correct Answer
    A. The alphabetic principle
    Explanation
    Graphophonemic knowledge is teh understanding of the relationship between a pgraheme and a phoneme - its letter/sound corresponse.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    An entire body of research indicates that combining insturction inphonolgical and phonemic awareness and letter/sound relationships appears to be the most important factor in successful early reading.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The given statement is true. Research has consistently shown that a combination of instruction in phonological and phonemic awareness, along with letter/sound relationships, is crucial for early reading success. Phonological awareness refers to the ability to identify and manipulate the sounds in spoken language, while phonemic awareness specifically focuses on the individual phonemes or sounds in words. By teaching children these skills and helping them understand the connections between letters and sounds, they develop the necessary foundation for reading and decoding words effectively.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    As awareness develops that letters in written words stand for sounds in spoken words, children are then rady to encode and decode, which one is the process of going from sound to print.

    • A.

      Decoding

    • B.

      Encoding

    Correct Answer
    B. Encoding
    Explanation
    Decodin is the process of using letter/sound correspondences to recognize words.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Which process of encoding and decoding relates to reading?

    • A.

      Decoding

    • B.

      Encoding

    Correct Answer
    A. Decoding
    Explanation
    Encoding relates to spelling.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Reading simple, regular words from left to right, generating sounds for letters, and blending sounds into words are examples of of which early awareness skill?

    • A.

      Decoding

    • B.

      Encoding

    Correct Answer
    A. Decoding
    Explanation
    Decoding is the correct answer because it refers to the process of reading words by recognizing and blending the sounds of individual letters together. This skill involves breaking down words into their individual sounds and then blending those sounds together to form words. It is a crucial early awareness skill that helps children develop their reading abilities by understanding the relationship between letters and sounds. Encoding, on the other hand, refers to the process of converting spoken language into written form.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    The example /m/ /a/ /n/ are written man is called decoding.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The example is called encoding. The first step in spelling development is the association of phonemes (sounds) with graphemes (letter and letter combinations).

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Which is NOT part of the systematic approach to developing the alphabetic principle?

    • A.

      Teach some continuous sounds early, for example /m/, /s/

    • B.

      Teach separtely auditorally similar sounds and theri corresponding letters. For example /b/, /v/.

    • C.

      Teach students to discriminate visually similar letters, for example b/d

    • D.

      Teach students to identify sight words, for example a, the, I, my, you, is, are.

    • E.

      Teach the sounds of letters that can be used to bukld many words. For example, /m/, /s/, /a/, /t/.

    Correct Answer
    D. Teach students to identify sight words, for example a, the, I, my, you, is, are.
    Explanation
    Teaching students to identify sight words, for example a, the, I, my, you, is, are would be used in develpmenting patterns of alphabetic skills in children by the end of Kindergarten.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Children's familiarity with an object related to a particular letter of the alphabet help them remember that letter.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Children's familiarity with an object related to a particular letter of the alphabet can aid in their ability to remember that letter. This is because when children have a concrete object or image associated with a letter, it provides them with a visual and tactile connection, making it easier for them to recall and recognize the letter. This association helps enhance their memory and understanding of the alphabet.
