These resources are Science of Reading aligned, include practice activities for kindergarten and first grade, and will improve instruction for all students.
Check out the PREVIEW to learn more!
Simply Kinder has been on a journey to better understand the research behind the Science of Reading and how to improve instruction for all students. One of the recommended tools for improving reading instruction of sounds. By focusing on the sounds the letters make in detail students can gain a deeper understanding of reading.
Look no further for the all-encompassing Sound Wall & Activities Bundle:
This is a combination of two bundles: Sound Wall with Mouth Photos Bundle and Alphabet Printables with Mouth Photos.
The Alphabet Printables Bundle currently includes:
- Alphabet Printables with Mouth Photos Print and Seesaw – 4 printables with the mouth photos. Each letter has students rainbow writing the sound, identifying the sound in pictures, and writing the sound. The mouth photo encourages students to say the sound while they work with it. There are 2 upper case pages and 2 lower case pages.
- Alphabet Posters with Mouth Photos – Included in this bundle is a set of color alphabet wall cards that has real photos. Each card is 10.8 by 5.04 in size and includes an engaging initial sound photo, the letter in a traditional font, and an image/s of kindergarten students making the sound.
- Sound Brochures with Mouth Photos (EDITABLE) – One brochure for each of the 44 English sounds as well as q & x. Each brochure includes 6 pages with these sections: cover with sound and keyword, how to make the sound with a real mouth photo, words that have the sound (some words start with the sound and some have it in it), find the sound (find and color the pictures), voiced and unvoiced identification, parent tips, and tricks – explaining all the things, fun activity like a maze, completing a picture, or rainbow writing, how to write the most common spelling, home link to do something fun at home with the sound.
- Sound Interactive Notebooks – Each sound comes with a sound identifier to color for the section of their notebook, mouth photo for correct formation with high-quality resolution and using real kindergarteners in the photos, keyword where students can flip that part up and draw the keyword you use OR draw the keyword provided on their own, identifying if the sound is voiced or unvoiced, sound sort where students identify words that have the sound in it, and spelling pattern cards (2 sets to pick from). Interactive Notebook pages print 3 per sound but glue onto 2 pages (front and back or side to side). Sounds included are the 44 English sounds as well as schwa, x, and q (so a-z and a bunch more). This resource comes in a BEGINNING AND ADVANCED SET. The beginning set is intended for kindergarten-age students and only includes the spelling patterns most commonly reviewed in that grade. The advanced set includes the most common spelling patterns in the English language per current Science of Reading and lists them in order of most frequently used.
- Alphabet Mouth Photo Cards | Articulation Photos with Real Photos – Show your students photos of how to make the sounds with these great photo cards.
The Sound Wall Bundle currently includes:
- Sound Wall with Spelling Cards – Deepen your students’ understanding of sounds by organizing them onto a sound wall. Each of the 44 phonemes has a mouth formation and sound spelling card with keyword picture. We give you a full spelling pattern set and a kinder set too but they are sticky note yellow so you can easily cover patterns you are not teaching. This comes with a kindergarten sound wall version and a full or advanced option as well. It’s everything. you need for kindergarten and beyond!
- Sound Spelling Cards – These are just the sound spelling cards.
Each card has spelling patterns listed in order of frequency and an engaging keyword nonfiction photo. It also comes with a full spelling pattern set OR kindergarten set that focuses only on spelling patterns typically taught in kinder (ie. the long vowel for a only includes a_e, not ay, ai, etc.). Cards come in sticky note yellow to cover spelling patterns you are not covering (or have not covered yet) and white. Sizing is 10.6 by 4.1 and 5.8 by 4.1, so they are different sizes in the Sound Wall above.
- Teacher Tip Cards (NEW) – These are new and currently only available in this bundle. Each phoneme has a tip card with the proper mouth formation in photos and words, keyword pictures, any quirks the sound has, and spelling patterns. The spelling patterns are in order by most frequently, including sample words, and generalizations on when to possibly use that spelling pattern.
- Spelling Pattern Picture Cards – In this file we give you 116 pictures, one for each spelling pattern for each of the 44 phonemes. For example, the sound k has spelling patterns c, k, ck, and ch. We give you one picture for each of those spelling patterns. And then we give them to you in different sizes to use. At this level, it’s not about teaching them different spelling patterns BUT about recognizing and exposing them to words that have that sound NOT just that initial sound. Very powerful.
- Sound Wall (Just the Labels) – This file contains all the labels (such as vowels and consonants, stops, etc) and icons (such as voiced and unvoiced). The labels are clipart and not real photos.
- Individual Sound Charts – This is a huge file that includes every option you could possibly want in an individual sound wall. Want to focus on just kindergarten sounds? We got you. Want to use real mouth pictures on there? We got you. Don’t see an option you need, let us know and we will add it.
- Phoneme Cards – These cards are great for showing students the proper mouth formation for each sound. You get to pick from 3 different options on what you want on these cards. They range from just printed letters to icons for voiced and unvoiced. These are perfect for your sound wall if you have lots of space or are great for holding during whole or small group instruction to show correct formation.

Sight Words By Phonics Skill, High-Frequency Words Practice:
Did you know that most sight words ARE DECODABLE? That’s right. If you are teaching the word ME, why not teach the word BE, HE, WE, SO, and GO? Or when you are teaching the short a sound, why not teach the words SAT and HAD? By understanding why these words say the sound they do in them, students can apply that skill to all of the other words they encounter with it!
So we are taking a deeper dive into the Fry, Dolch, and other common sight words lists to find the patterns so you can teach your students how to actually decode them and get those high-frequency words under their belt SO MUCH FASTER! Woohoo!
➡️Learn more in the PREVIEW and get a FREE Sample to try out first!
Included in this bundle is:
This is the bundle for our Sight Words by Phonics Skills sets. Each set is focused on one spelling pattern or generalization/rule. Teach your students the pattern or rule and then watch them decode ALL the high-frequency words with that pattern.
Each pattern includes a separate 70+ page file with these resources:

- Poster for the spelling rule or generalization or pattern.

Can you do this AND “heart words”?
YES! many lists include challenge words that will stretch what your students can do. For example, in our Open Syllable set there is the word she. If your students have not learned the SH sound yet they could put a HEART over the SH so you can tell them it’s a skill that is coming but for now, they just have to know it by heart. Hearts should be done sounds they have not learned yet – hence DECODING sight words.
Thought: This is a lot different? Can I DO IT? How will I know and how will I explain it to families?
We have you covered. We give you the phonics rules, spelling patterns, and generalizations. You just teach those to your students and use the words on the list. We even give you a family letter to explain the why and how for each spelling pattern.
