Word walls are something I see in almost every classroom. They are sometimes on walls, on doors, on cabinets, or shelves. Wherever they are, they are a useful and important part to these classrooms.
Students can use the word wall for writing and for Daily 5 word work. Make the words wall even more special and include your students' names!
If you are learning a topic or studying a theme, include words from your study and give them a special color so the kids can pick them out easily. Need to boost math word usage? Include them in your word wall!
I also talk about environmental print. Students can connect with this because this is what surrounds them; a part of their life.
I've posted a few pics from other bloggers of their word walls. I also posted a pic of a word wall from a teacher I sub for. And I'm having a word wall linky party.
So come on over!
