I have always had small or shared classrooms so I never had enough room for a word wall. I also had a wide variety of students (K-5) so figuring out what kind of words to put up was a challenge. Next year, however, I will have all 2nd and 3rd graders who are with me all day :D A word wall is a must for next year so I made some word wall letters to go with my color scheme.
I'm considering adding orange in there too. I plan on starting the year with a few sight words and environmental print...we will see how it progresses as the year goes on!
I thought these came out cute so I added Custom Word Wall Letters to my Teachers Notebook store. You can choose your own colors and fonts all for $1. Check it out if your interested!
How do you guys use word walls in your room? Do you have any special activities you use with your word wall?
