If I could figure out how to post pictures from my phone I would. We adopted Envision too. During our training they showed pictures of different walls. In the middle should be your Big Ideas for the topic. Label each lesson. I used sentence stripes for the lesson question. Vocab was on index cards. Ideal if you can get student work to be examples of strategies. I tried but wasn't always successful. You build the wall as you go. When I started the next topic I started over. The Big ideas are in the teacher's manual as are the daily question. I will check my school computer and see if I have a copy of the inservice presentation.

At the time I was able to find plenty of examples of Focus Walls. Here is one wiki that may be helpful.

My district began requiring it last year. I think it varies district to district, but we have to have math vocabulary, standards, objectives, and strategies for topics we are learning. I just do my lesson on copy paper in marker over the ELMO and then post that. We have to change it each unit, too. It is a lot at first but I saved all my lessons so now I just have to repost them this year.

We have used Envisions for years and they suggest a math word wall but they have never nade a fuss over it. I would love to hear what others say.

We adopted Envision Math and one thing we were told is a must is a focus wall. I've tried finding examples but not much luck. Can anyone please share with me what they have on their focus wall? I did find a few labels from a site, but I'm not even sure how they are to be arranged.
