Nearly every elementary classroom "has" a word wall nowadays. The question is...
Do you "do" the word wall or simply "have" a word wall? There is a BIG difference between the two!
When I first started teaching it was accepted practice to "have" a word wall. We would get a new word wall word each week and place it on the word wall. Of course, there wasn't much else that went on with the word wall.
I LOVE "doing" word wall in my classroom! I value the time we spend "doing" it every single day. I see my students' incredible growth and it's a time they really enjoy too......they love playing the word wall games!
Below is a "mini" word wall for those dealing with tight spaces -- to use in a writing center or behind your guided reading table, or at home with your own little one.... :) This set of alphabet header cards makes a perfect "mini" word wall!
Come on over to Kindergarten Lifestyle to grab this FREEBIE and hopefully you can learn a new word wall game or two to spice up your word wall routine this coming year as well!
