Here’s a new way to think about Word Walls for English Language Learners. When learning a new language students have to understand both social language and academic language. Here is a new way to encourage academic language.
The word wall has headers for:
• Academic Adjectives
• Academic Nouns
• Academic Adverbs
• Academic Verbs
You can use these resources in a couple of ways
1) Use this as an interactive word wall where students find words in classroom readings and add it to the wall
2) Pre determine words you want to add and have them on the word wall
This word wall is easily accessible for English Language Learners and encourages students using precise language in their writing. The word wall broken into four categories will help students forming and writing their own sentences. It includes blank cards for you to add your own words.
