There are 44 phonemes in English, but only 26 letters. Yet, there are more than 240 ways to represent the sounds in English—whew! Sound walls are helpful instructional tools because they provide teachers with an approachable way to begin
incorporating evidence-based instruction in the classroom. Thanks to Dr. Mary Dahlgren and her passion for spreading this knowledge, teachers have been eagerly implementing sound
walls in classrooms around the world.
With daily use, a sound wall doesn’t become wallpaper or just another poster; it becomes the canvas that students learn to use as a starting point for reading and spelling. And just as a canvas must be painted in order to become a masterpiece, a
sound wall should be accessible, used, and touched by students.
There is a difference between having a sound wall and using a sound wall. If sound walls are posted but not being referenced, they will not be any more helpful than a word wall. But the exciting reality is that students and teachers can interact with sound walls during all parts of the day.
Let’s explore how sound walls are beneficial to teacher knowledge of language:
Organizing practice opportunities throughout the day will help students to become more and more comfortable using the sound wall on their own. Here are some ideas to try in your classroom:
When teaching in person, students write the various spellings for the sound, and then cross-check their answers by looking at the sound wall card. While students are writing, teachers can use personal sound walls to monitor progress and mastery
of phonemes and graphemes. This is especially helpful during small-group instruction.
Reference your sound wall throughout the day to deepen your instruction, and encourage your students to interact with this tool often. As you use it more, students will as well! If you are interested in growing your knowledge of sound walls, including
each English phoneme and its spelling(s), LETRS professional development is highly recommended. It will give you the content knowledge and evidence-based best practices that you
need to be a teacher who is smarter than their program.
