Tropical Sound Wall!
Implement a SOUND WALL for phonics in your classroom!
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 SOUND WALL includes 47 sounds and is in a TROPICAL theme.
Sound Wall Includes:
✔47 posters in tropical theme
✔Each poster includes: a tropical image, phoneme and 3-4 words containing the most common graphemes.
✔An additional set of posters that include extended graphemes
✔ A set pf EDITABLE phoneme posters so you can add your own words!
✔’Sound Wall’ Heading for your display
✔ Print more than one to a page to reduce size for mini-posters and flashcards
✔Posters for headings
✔Mouth formations for each phoneme
