Diphthong Flashcards for a Sound Wall or Phonics Activity

This set of diphthong flashcards has been created to be a versatile resource for teachers during their phonics lessons. Thinking of creating a sound wall for your classroom? These cards include the diphthong letters, mouth articulation images, and word and picture examples for each diphthong. 

Each diphthong includes three different flashcards set up with slightly different information to suit the needs of your class and how you may use this set of flashcards in your classroom.

What is a Sound Wall in the Classroom?

A sound wall in the classroom is a visual tool designed to help students understand and remember the various sounds in the English language. It is typically displayed prominently in the classroom and serves as a reference point for students as they learn and practice phonics, spelling, and reading skills. 

Due to the complex sound structure of diphthongs as they involve a combination of two vowel sounds within the same syllable – a dedicated sound wall showing these diphthongs will be the perfect addition to your phonics classroom.
