This speech-to-print visual organization of phonemes and graphemes leads students to locate each sound easily, and then connect that sound to the available spelling options. The colorful posters present consonants and vowels as a sound wall organized by the articulatory features of each phoneme:
- mouth position (lips, teeth, tongue)
- airflow (is it free flowing or blocked)
- voicing (what happens with the voice and vocal cords)
Our Sound Wall uses Brainspring’s Orton-Gillingham Phonics First and Structures program Key Words as sound anchors. Yet, teachers of any phonics program and approach will find this a perfect addition to the lesson when introducing each new sound.
The two Sound Wall posters measure 24 x 36 inches each. Hang them one above the other or side-by-side. Included with the posters are five loose sheets: an information sheet with examples of how to introduce the phonemes and graphemes; and four reproducible masters to provide students with a copy of the sound wall, should you choose.
Dimensions: posters 24 x 36 inches; masters and information sheets 8.5 x 11 inches; poster tube 3 x 25 inches
Packaging: poster tube
Content: 2 posters and 5 printed sheets
These posters are nice in size and will be helpful in teaching letter sounds. I do think the vowel poster needs space for the schwa sound.
