Word Wall with very little board space

Does anyone have any creative ideas for how to make a word wall with very little bulletin board space? My room this year has very little space. We ARE allowed to use painter's tape or command hooks, but I'm struggling with how to make something that looks nice.

I follow someone on Instagram by the name "Saddle up for 2nd grade". She recently posted about this exact thing and put a picture of how she does it. Here is the link to something similar from her website.

I don't know your grade level or the #of words going on your wall, but here are some ideas:
  • One of my colleagues uses the space underneath her chalkboards. She attaches bulletin board paper and draws lines to section it into 26 sections/one letter header. She attaches the word cards with tape.
  • Use word cards, velcro dots and post them on dots attached to foamboard that is sectioned with letter headers.
  • Hang ribbons. Attach words to clothespins and clip to the ribbons.
  • Use portable word walls. Maybe have a small bb where you post 1-3 new words. Students add them to their lists.(large paper sectioned with letter headers). The paper is folded in half so it fits in folder.

Can you use the back of bookshelf and turn it into a word wall? Maybe have your students keep a three prong folder with 26 pages to add words to as they learn them.

Word wall

I used the cabinet doors for my word wall. One advantage was that at state testing time instead of having to remove or cover them up I just opened the doors.

Since you have little space, how about making individual word wall for each desk. That way yourkids will have instant access. Tape it to the corners of the desks.
