Word Wall
Old 10-14-2007, 04:38 PM

I teach fourth grade and my student use our classroom word wall often. I start with just the letters of the alpahbet. As we encounter new words, I add them. I keep a basket of notecards, cut in half, near the board. I write synonymns/anytomns and/or the defintion on the back of each word. I put the words up with fun-tack...then the kids can always check the meaning.

Prior to making my own, I used a store bought word wall. THe children did not utilize the words because they were meaningless to them. I find the new method works so much better.
Hope this helps!
