Part of the series Sound Waves Spelling.
Teaching charts are large charts to display in every Sound Waves Spelling classroom. They include the 43 phonemes of Australian English and the most common graphemes used to represent them.
Teaching charts are ideal for whole-class use when introducing phonemes and graphemes, and when playing games.
Features differ across the foundation, standard and extended editions.
About the program:
Sound Waves Spelling is a systematic word study program for your whole school. Informed by research on the best practices for teaching spelling, the program incorporates four key areas of teaching: phonemic awareness, synthetic phonics, morphology and etymology.
A powerful pedagogy for spelling and reading
Sound Waves uses synthetic phonics to explicitly and systematically teach students how sounds (phonemes) are represented by letter/s (graphemes) to form written words.
Instruction is intentionally pre-planned so that students progress from learning simple, broadly applicable phoneme–grapheme relationships to those that are more complex and unusual.
Spark your students’ interest in language
Successful spelling also relies on an understanding that words can be constructed from meaningful parts.
Sound Waves gets students excited about word study across all year levels through progressive activities that explore morphology (prefixes, suffixes and Greek and Latin roots), and language concepts like homophones and homographs.
Upper primary students delve deeper into etymology (word origins), helping them to understand and remember unusual or difficult words.
Success starts with effective instruction
Explicit teaching is an effective way to introduce phoneme–grapheme relationships, spelling strategies and language concepts to your students, which is why it forms the basis of all Sound Waves lessons.
Every lesson plan and slideshow is created to support the explicit teaching of spelling. We provide the resources so you can deliver lessons with ease.
Specifically written for Australian classrooms
Sound Waves is based on the phonemes of Australian English and follows a logical scope and sequence that aligns with all state and national curricula.
