What is a Sound Wall?

A sound wall is a way to organize phonemes and spelling patterns for students to use as a reference when they are spelling and reading words.  Words are grouped by phonemes (or sounds) and NOT beginning letters. There are 44 phonemes in the English language. A sound wall organizes these phonemes in a way that allow students to make sense of spelling patterns that make different sounds.

What is the difference between a sound wall and a word wall?

Word walls tend to be organized alphabetically using the first letter of the word.  Sight words, or high frequency words are typically placed on a word wall based on the first letter of the word.  When adding words to a word wall, teachers use the printed version and teach the pronunciation of that word. As stated above, words on the sound wall are organized by their sounds or spelling pattern.  When adding words to a sound wall, teachers first teach the sounds (or phonemes), then add the printed words that use the sound.

Why should I use a sound wall?

A sound wall can help children learn their grapheme (print) to phoneme (sound) relationships by giving them a reference point.  Students are explicitly taught the phonemes and proper articulation.  Sound walls provide consistent review of the sounds, improving their spelling and decoding skills.  By using the skills learned from the sound wall, students learn both high-frequency words and decode unknown words within texts.

How can I use a sound wall?

A sound wall can be empty at the beginning of the year.  It will grow as you teach the sounds and spelling patterns.  You can use the ‘lock’ icon to cover sounds you haven’t covered yet.  Introduce one sound at a time.  Draw the students’ attention to what your mouth is doing as you say the sound.  Focus their attention on the letters and the articulation card on your sound wall.  Connect how the clipart picture uses the sound.  Add words to the blank card to also use the same sound. Be sure to demonstrate how the students can use the sound wall as a reference tool.

Sarah P. - "This resource is worth every cent, plus more. The students have been gaining a tremendous amount of understanding from being introduced to new sounds and phonograms with the sound wall. They are learning faster and the learning is sticking better. I was absolutely amazed at how the dyslexic students in my class are now making more rapid progress with their phonics and spelling and reading because we are using the sound wall. Thank you so much. My students and I both LOVE your work."

Debra F. - "Thank you so much for creating this for us! It is so complete and affordable. I not only wanted the sound wall cards but individual charts for my resource students. Each of my students will have his/her own individual charts in their folders for my classroom. Other individual charts were too expensive. Thank you for another great product!"

Megan B. - "I reviewed a lot of sound walls before purchasing one, and I'm so glad I found this one. The pictures are clear, the included words are great examples (the authors seem to have taken regional accents into account and picked their words to work everywhere), and the bonus sound posters are invaluable... I can't believe they threw those in for free! This is the best sound wall I've seen."

    This is exactly what I needed for my guided reading groups. I have been teaching many of these during the word work portion of my guided reading, and now my students have a great resource to take back with them as they move into independent reading. I’ve already made the posters for teaching and small posters for the student to have as a resource.

    This printed amazingly with my printer. The words and pictures are perfect for kids. I loved the different ways I could adapt for my classroom to fit my needs and space.
