Sound Walls: A Big Boost for Early Literacy

Vowel Valley poster image

Word walls have become a K–3 instruction staple, but how effective are they? As the science of reading makes its way to classrooms, teachers are shifting from word walls to sound walls because research shows that speech-to-print instruction produces better results for students than the more traditional print-to-speech approach.

In this webinar, literacy experts Stacy Hurst and Lindsay Kemeny introduce viewers to sound walls and explain how they help students make that vital connection between letters and the sounds those letters represent. This session also dives into interactive, technology-enhanced sound walls, an innovation that enables students to practice sound articulation. Sound interesting? It’s the newest horizon in high-impact literacy learning.
