Implement a sound wall for phonics in your classroom!
A sound wall is organised by sound, helping students to move from speech-print using phonemes (letter sounds), mouth formation(articulation), and recognition of common and uncommon graphemes (letter patterns).
A sound wall is a fantastic tool, easily differentiated for younger and older students. It aids in explicit and systematic phonic instruction, orthographic mapping, spelling and decoding, while also providing students with a working reference wall for reading and writing.
Sound Wall Includes:
✔Display elements to create sound wall including headings (see below)
✔Each sound card includes: phoneme, mouth formation image, picture and word for common grapheme, most common graphemes
✔Editable PowerPoint containing template, with embedded fonts, so that you can add your own words/pictures to match your accent and/or phonics program (main resource is not editable)
✔Getting started display guide with two options (one low-prep) for displaying sound cards.
✔ Resource is in blackline for printing on coloured paper (great for colour-coding exercises).
Sound Wall Phonemes Included:
✿Consonants /p/ /t/ /k/ /b/ /d/ /g/ /j/ /f/ /s/ /v/ /z/ /h/ /y/ /w/ /l/ /r/ /m/ /n/
