Description

  • Vowel Valley
  • Consonant Chart
  • Individual Sound Wall

Help your readers and writers move from speech to print. This sound wall with real photographs will help you teach and reinforce phonemes and graphemes throughout the year. Add your students' mouth/tongue/teeth placement photos above each card to add an extra helpful visual. *Mouth placement pictures are not included in this file as I cannot sell photographs of student faces. Please contact me at the email below if you would like recommendations for mouth placement pictures.*

Graphemes listed under each image are organized by their frequency in English. See Hanna's research for more information.

4 PDFs are included:

1. Sound Wall PDF with Virgules - large phoneme/grapheme cards intended for wall displays. Organized by vowels and consonants. Virgules (slashes) with sounds at the top of the cards, /k/, before the graphemes.

2. Sound Wall PDF without Virgules - large phoneme/grapheme cards intended for wall displays. Organized by vowels and consonants. No virgules (slashes) included for the sound. Only graphemes are listed.

3. Sound Wall Labels - titles and categories for each part of the vowel valley and consonant wall intended to be used for wall displays

4. Individual Sound Wall PDF - intended to be printed and glued on a folder for individual student use in class or during hybrid and/or digital learning. May also be used to track progress during auditory drills.

*Various options are included for each phoneme card, as compared in the preview file. Be sure to print the one that will best fit your student, school, or district needs. The product is image heavy and will use a lot of color ink. Check before you print to ensure you are printing the pages you prefer. You will see four options throughout the product. Red font indicates a short vowel.

Card Options:

  • phoneme listed first in virgules / /, grapheme(s) listed second, red font for short vowels, black font for all other cards
  • phoneme listed first in virgules / /, grapheme(s) listed second, black font for all cards
  • no phoneme listed, only grapheme(s) listed, red font for short vowels, black font for all other cards
  • no phoneme listed, only grapheme(s) listed, black font for all cards

*PRINTING TROUBLESHOOTING*

This is an image HEAVY file. Please try printing from Adobe if you have any issues. Image heavy files can transfer slowly to wireless printers depending on your wireless internet speed. It may take your printer longer to print. Try printing just the pages you need or one page at a time. You may also wish to send this to Staples or Office Depot to print.
