This 108-page download includes a complete set of word wall words for a first grade classroom, including transfer words (word families), sight words, contractions, chunking challenges, and more.
Letter cards (A-Z) have also been included and are great for word wall toppers and/or flash cards if you don't already have a set. Two cards have been included for the letter Xx. One shows a xylophone and the other shows a fox, which ties in with Jack Hartmann's song. Consider posting both cards for the letter Xx because that letter most often makes the /ks/ sound, like in fox.
In addition to the word cards, there are several activities and games provided for introducing new words weekly and reinforcing previous words already posted on the word wall.
Some of the activities include:
- Elkonin Boxes
- Word Wall Laser Tag
- Rhyme Time
- My Wonderful Words
- Say It!
- Find Five
- Word Wall Bingo
You'll also find suggestions for alternative assessments as well as links for other companion word-wall activities at this store.
By eliminating or adding a few words, this resource would also apply to kindergarten and 2nd grade.
The PREVIEW is two pages, so don't forget to scroll down to the second page for a sample of the letter cards.
Thank you for your interest in this item.
Happy teaching! :)
