Ready to ditch the traditional word wall in favor of a research-supported sound wall? This sound wall system supports student reading development and is backed by research in the science of reading.

It features photographs of diverse mouths articulating the various sounds, as well as photographs of familiar objects for each grapheme.

User-friendly! The articulation photos are designed to print two-sided, with labels on the back to assist in display placement.


  • 35 Articulation cards with photographs
  • 43 Phoneme cards
  • 93 Grapheme cards with photographs
  • 8 Titles for sound groupings
  • Instructions and tips on preparation, set up, and usage

Consistency is key for early readers! Find the mini version here, featuring the same photographs on a smaller scale for individual student reference.
