More About This Resource

This sound wall teacher guide with lesson plans includes everything you need to explicitly and systematically introduce and utilize a sound wall with your Kindergarten, 1st grade or 2nd grade students. Over and over, I kept hearing the question, “Christina, I’ve bought my sound wall but now what?” My intention with this resource is to both educate teachers on how to make a sound wall a meaningful learning tool and to provide you with explicit and systematic lesson plans for introducing using a sound wall with your students.

This resource is a sample of my resource: Sound Wall Explicit Lessons and Activities

This resource is a companion to the resource,  Sound Wall, but can also be used with any phonics scope and sequence or sound wall! Each lesson plan is a step by step guide for introducing the phoneme & sound card, articulation gestures and graphemes.

  • 47 lesson plans for introducing phonemes and graphemes to students (all 44 phonemes of the English language plus c, qu, & x)
  • Consonant Sound Wall & Vowel Valley Overviews
  • Phoneme to Grapheme Dictionary
  • Routines for daily and weekly review
  • Common questions & answers

    Just starting mid year with SoR and in 2nd grade and was wondering if it is appropriate to share the sound wall sound/ articulation cards as they are introduced in groups? Is there a personal student sound wall?

    • Christina

      Hi Amy, The personal student sound walls are included in the bundle, there are several versions! Using the cards in groups is a great idea to reinforce what you are teaching during explicit whole group instruction lessons! 🙂 -Christina
