54 pages of Sound Wall goodness!
I have written this manual to provide practical, evidence-based advice to anyone wanting to get started with a Sound Wall. It’s like having a coach to teach you what to do, what to say, and how to use Sound Walls effectively.
The manual goes hand in hand with the Sound Cards, or it can also be used as a ‘How To’ guide if you’re wanting to DIY and make your own sound cards.
Inside you’ll find:
- Background information on why and how Sound Walls are beneficial
- Basic linguistics to support the teaching of reading and spelling
- Phonemes & graphemes: connecting speech to print
- Sound Wall layout guides
- A teaching sequence with some scripting to demonstrate how to introduce new phonemes and graphemes
- How to use the Sound Wall and individual Sound Cards for interactive teaching & review, independent spelling, and phonemic awareness.
- A large reference section detailing the articulatory features of each phoneme (how it is produced in the mouth), words containing the phoneme, and how the phoneme can be represented by different graphemes (spelling patterns).
