The Next Big Thing in the Science of Reading

Helping your K–3 students develop into skillful readers can be daunting, especially when you have to integrate more than one curriculum to ensure good coverage of word recognition skills. Reading Horizons is proud to introduce Sound CityTM, a brand new phonemic awareness component of Reading Horizons Discovery®. Sound City, which includes digital and print sound wall components, will help your students easily make the connection between speech and print enabling them to decode and spell words with greater proficiency.

Sound Walls — Part 1: A Big Boost for Early Literacy

Presented by Stacy Hurst, M.Ed., Assistant Professor of Teacher Education, Southern Utah University, and Chief Education Officer, Reading Horizons; and Lindsay Kemeny, Second Grade Teacher, Davis School District (UT)

Word walls have become a staple of K–3 instruction, but how effective are they? As Science of Reading research makes its way to classrooms, teachers are beginning to make the shift from word walls to sound walls because research shows that speech-to-print instruction produces better results for students than the more traditional print-to-speech approach.
