Do you have a word wall? How do you use it?
For years, I had the traditional word wall with high frequency words on my wall. The problem? It was basically a very large wall decoration. My students never referenced it or attempted to use it in any way. That all changed when I decided to use the word wall for Root Words instead. Now, this is a tool the students use daily. And because of this, they are internalizing the roots....which is having many wonderful side effects.
Come on over to Teaching in Room 6 to see exactly how I have utilized this space for root words and how I am getting the most bang for my buck with it. See you over there!
