Kindergartners have been using their sound walls throughout daily instruction to identify first sounds in words, spell, and read. Sound walls help connect words and letters to phoneme articulation. Phoneme/grapheme mapping is an important early reading skill that requires continuous practice. When a student hears a sound, they use their sound wall and the images on it to identify spelling patterns that correspond to that sound. Students in Kindergarten through fifth grade have sound walls in their classrooms to help them. We are proud of their persistence!
