I love the sound wall Lessons resource! You can use with any phonics program you have already and if you don’t have one, it comes with a scope and sequence to follow! Using with my kiddos this week!

This resource has saved me so much time! Students love the lessons. I love the lessons, scope and sequence. District is purchasing new reading curriculum and with a little rearranging to meet new scope and sequence, I will still use Miss Winter’s Bliss resources. Science of Reading is the shift and these resources align perfectly.
