This kit offers great value for money, combining the elements you need to get you flying with your Sound Wall.

To become a skilled reader, our brains must connect written letter symbols with speech sounds. Using a Sound Wall supports learners to connect speech to print and make sense of the writing system of the Māori language by cracking the alphabetic code.
“without awareness of the speech sounds that letters represent, one cannot match letters to sounds and read unfamiliar words.”
~Dr Louisa Moats, 2010
The Sound Cards are intended to be used daily in an interactive, engaging way to support the teaching and learning of:
- Te Reo Māori speech sounds: orokati (consonants) & oropuare (vowels)
- phonemic awareness
- alphabetic code knowledge
