1.INTRODUCTION "Phonological Awareness (PA) involves the ability to notice, think about, or manipulate the individual sounds in words" (Torgeson and Mathes 1998: 2). Research of more than two decades has affirmed the importance of Phonological Awareness in relation to reading acquisition. "The presence of phonological awareness is a hallmark characteristic of good readers while its absence is a consistent characteristic of poor readers. The gains in phonological awareness directly affect the ease of reading acquisition and subsequent reading achievement' (Smith, Simmons & Kameenuj, 1995). It has been hypothesized and strongly supported that "a reciprocal relation exists between phonological awareness and reading acquisition: PA facilitates and influenced by reading acquisition. And this relation means that phonological awareness is important prior to and during learning to read" (Smith, Simmons & Kameenui, 1995).
