Sound Waves Foundation has had a makeover!

The Foundation year is vital to effectively implementing Sound Waves as your whole-school phonics and word study program. That’s why we’ve created a raft of new and improved resources to make it easier than ever to successfully introduce your students to reading and spelling.

The Sound Waves program is fully resourced from Foundation to Year 6, building successful spellers across your whole school. Sound Waves students don’t stop learning phonics in Year 3, but hone their literacy skills as they progress through upper primary. The spiral curriculum of Sound Waves offers students multiple opportunities, both within and across year levels, to conquer difficult words and concepts. It also extends learning with Extension Word Lists and Super Challenges.
