Is this resource aligned with the Science of Reading?
This is a question we get asked a lot. The Science of Reading is a body of work that is not complete. At Simply Kinder we have been learning about the Science of Reading since 2019 and have done hundreds of hours of professional development, conferences, and trainings in research based literacy. (It’s personal to us). We have extensive training in Orton-Gillingham approaches and have seen it work first hand.
So, is this resource aligned? Yes, it is aligned with what we know and believe to be best practice for what we currently know about the Science of Reading.
~ How do I use for kindergarten? Please follow your good curriculum and district requirements. There is lots of information out there too about sound walls. This is a tool – so you have to decide if you want to build the tool on the wall as you introduce the sounds OR have the tool all there for students to access from the start.
~ Does this have Q & X? This file does include combo sounds – q and x per request and some programs have these sounds on their sound walls while others do not.
~ What titles are there? We give you the words consonant, stops, nasal, liquids, affricates, fricatives, glides, continuants, combination, and other. You won’t need to use all of these as some teachers use continuants and others use affricates and fricatives.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “I am so glad I decided to purchase this pack for implementing a sound wall this year! The mouth position photos and voiced/unvoiced symbols help when introducing a new sound to students. I know I can use this for years to come and for a variety of different grades based on the variety of options. Highly recommend!”
