Sound Walls: Where do I put phoneme/grapheme cards "qu" and "x"?

The grapheme qu corresponds with the phonemes /k/ and /w/ (ex. quiet or quit). The grapheme x corresponds with the following:

  • the phonemes /k/ and /s/ (ex. fox or box).

  • the phonemes /g/ and /z/ as in (ex. exit).

Many educators post these two grapheme cards off to the side near the /k/ card. You can add a label that says "two sounds" or "borrowers" if you would like.
