Teaching Charts - Wall Charts
The Sound Waves Extended Teaching Charts are two large wall-sized charts, one for consonant sounds and another for vowel sounds. They provide an easy reference for students to use when decoding and encoding complex words.
These extended charts contain an additional 183 words and graphemes that mid- and upper-level students will encounter as they progress in the Sound Waves program. The charts are used to:
- introduce and explore phonemes
- discover and identify graphemes
- play games to reinforce phonemes
- graphemes and spelling patterns
- provide a reference for spelling choices for sounds
Sound Waves Overview
Sound Waves is the only whole school phonemic word study program written by Australian teachers, for the Australian Curriculum and based on the sounds of Australian English.
The phonemic approach is recognised as one of the most effective ways to teach and learn spelling and reading skills. Sound Waves develops phonemic awareness through a systematic program for students from Foundation to Year 6 (up to Year 7 in WA, QLD and SA).
Through the explicit teaching of the Sound Waves program teachers assist students to develop an understanding of our language and the fundamental skills of spelling and reading.
