What is phonemic awareness?

Phonemic awareness is an important early step in learning to read. does a great job of explaining what it is and how it differs from phonological awareness in this article.

Why is phonemic awareness important?

A child's level of phonemic awareness upon entering school is widely held to be the strongest, single determinant of success that she or he will experience in learning to read – or, conversely, the likelihood that she or he will fail. In fact, research shows that phonemic awareness can be developed through instruction, and – furthermore – that doing so significantly accelerates children's subsequent reading and writing achievement.
