Have you heard of a sound wall? It's a great alternative to the traditional 'A-Z Word Wall'! Words are categorised by the sounds and manner of articulation, making it easier for students to read, spell and say them.

Because this resource is made by an Australian educator, it is targeted towards our accent/pronunciation. However, adaptions can be made for educators in other countries - just reach out and I'll do my best to help! Note: In the original 'Pink Blush Theme' resource, I also included the files separated into PDF categories. Due to the graphics in this resource, the size was too large for TPT. However, please reach out via and I'm happy to provide a download link.
