Ohhhh....the word wall! A source of struggles for me for the past few years. I have read so many different opinions as far as: where it should be, what should be on it, what the letters should look like, should it be interactive, should you have more than one!?! So MANY questions and differing opinions!
Here is my solution....why just have one word wall?! My room is not square and it's not a rectangle! WHAT SHAPE IS IT you say?! Well, it has a funky slanted wall, but my room is HUGE! They hung a big bulletin board over some cubbies that I have. I am sorry. I do not have a picture. (That is on my list for next year...take more pictures.) Anywaaaaay, That board can be seen by my kids from everywhere in the room. So, I wanted to put one of my word walls there. I have that one color coded! I put our high frequency words on yellow, girls names on pink, boys names on blue, and math words on orange.
I made new word wall letter headers for this word wall. You can click on the title page to download your FREEBIE! :-)
My second word wall is an interactive word wall. The kids can take the words off if they want to. It is much lower...easier for them to manipulate....therefore can't really be seen from anywhere in the room. I use the cards from my Letter Land packet on this wall. It has the letter card AND the beginning sound picture card too! You can click on the title page below and it will take you directly to that product in my store. I have a few versions available and actually working on a few more. I have had lots of requests for this to be redone in different backgrounds, colors and fonts. I post them as soon as I get them done.
I would love to hear about your word wall!
