Sound Walls in Your Classroom: The Pathway to Reading Fluency

Released: June 6, 2023

How do sound walls support the science of reading? Do you know how to best use a sound wall to get your students reading successfully? How can you improve the sound wall you’re already using?

Find the answers to these questions and more when you join us for this useful presentation. Literacy and sound wall expert Dr. Mary Dahlgren will help you build a thorough understanding of how to use a sound wall, implementation tips, and more—everything you need to know and why. This is one more step in understanding the speech-to-print connection to improve outcomes for increased reading skills.

Dr. Dahlgren, founder of Tools 4 Reading, (the original authority on sound wall resources), will share the research that validates reading is a process that requires knowing the sounds and print, and she will illustrate how a sound wall is a pathway to make sense of how print represents those sounds.

She will also share:

  • The need and purpose of having a sound wall in the classroom
  • How to introduce and teach all 44 phonemes
  • How to integrate a sound wall into your daily phonological awareness and phonics instruction
  • How and when to add print to a sound wall
