Successful Sound Walls
in the kindergarten classroom

Hi, I'm Amy Murray. I'm a former kindergarten teacher with more than 12 years of classroom experience turned teacher-author. I blog at Teachingexceptionalkinders.com. I love learning about the latest best practices in teaching reading and using what I learn to help teachers to save precious time so they can spend more time doing what makes them happy outside of the classroom.
The tools I used to implement a sound wall in my kindergarten classroom are simple, highly-effective, and visually-appealing. I am so excited to be able to share them with you so that you can implement a successful sound wall with your students, too!
The short answer is a sound wall is making the shift from a traditional word wall (print first) to organizing by phonemes or sounds (speech first) based on the current Science of Reading.
Yes! I designed this course with kindergarten teachers in mind, but it is applicable to any primary-aged (K-2) classroom. Special education teachers would also benefit from this course. You can use the sound wall cards to differentiate for the learners in your classroom.
No! You can complete the videos in this course in about 45 minutes. Then it's just about printing and prepping your materials which will not take long at all (or could even have a parent volunteer help you to prep the prinatbles) .
Yes! This course can be used by a beginner or someone who already has knowledge of sound walls. The first few videos really explain what a sound wall is and why we should use them, and how to effectively set up a sound wall in a kindergarten or primary classroom.
Yes! This course will be a great refresher and has all the tools (sound cards, labels, portable sound wall, etc.) that teachers need to implement a sound wall in a kindergarten or primary classroom.
Yes - without a doubt sound walls are an excellent tool to use with kindergarteners as they learn to read and write. The Science of Reading is showing us that young students need us to explicitly teach them phonemes and phonics and a sound wall is an excellent and highly effective way to do it.
