What is a Sound Wall?
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.
This resource would work for students of all ages!
Here are some possible uses for these in your classroom:
✿ include alongside your learning walls – use singular phonemes within your learning walls
✿ use in conjunction with vocabulary walls and morphemic spelling walls
✿ print small to create flashcards focused on phonemes
