To further this point, Berger states that, “toddlers use mental combinations, intellectual experimentation via imagination that can supersede little scientist stage” (2015, p. 176). Though we cannot know the exact age of the toddler due to the method of observation, it is clear that the toddler is fully present in at least the fifth and sixth stage of the six stages of sensorimotor intelligence. Child A observed has combined his thinking of stacking tube and putting blocks in there. The result depends on different orientation.

    The title of the article is called “The Stop and Go Phonemic Awareness Game: Providing Modeling, Practice, and Feedback” and it is written by Jill Howard Allor, Kristin A. Gansle, and R. Kenton Denny. The authors define phonemic awareness as “the ability to recognize the individual sounds within spoken words” and it is a critical skill needed to be successful with reading acquisition (Allor, Gansle, & Denny, 2006). The authors discuss the importance of explicitly teaching phonemic awareness skills to children who are struggling with reading. One purpose of the study was to track the progress of a select group of students using a curriculum-based measurement, called the Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills (DIBELS). The other purpose…
