What educators are saying

I'm so excited to get started with this product! I appreciate all the print options and chose this one over others because of the way the words were color coded.
This is a great companion to my OG lessons. Students can use their personal vowel valley papers or the classroom display to help them with their word work.

    WHAT IS A SOUND WALL? (Sample overview of beginner's guide)

    • A sound wall may seem daunting at first, and even as a reading intervention teacher for 25 years I was confused by the arrangement of the wall at first! However, my students picked up on the concepts almost immediately and continue to use it as a reference daily. They were excited to "unlock" new phonemes each day and use them in their writing!
    • A sound wall displays one poster for each of the 44+ sounds in the English language, divided into vowels and consonants.
    • Each sound poster includes all the letter combinations that might make a particular sound. For example, for the /k/ sound, you might use c (cat), k (kits), ch (chameleon), qu (unique) or ck (duck). For the /f/ sound you might use f, ff, or ph. We begin the year with most of the unfamilar graphemes covered up until directly taught.
    • Word cards can be arranged under the sound posters according to the sound being focused on, not necessarily the first letter like a sound wall. For example, the word "rain" might be posted under the long A sound poster, even though it starts with R. The word is displayed with the focus highlighted: rain
    • Even sight words can be added to a sound wall! Many sight words can be decoded, but many more only have one small part as an irregular spelling that can be learned and applied to many words, such as the Y in "my" sounding like Long i.
