This portable word wall is a great addition to your students' writing folders. Word wall includes all 220 Dolch high frequency words and offers space for children to add to the list as they grow as writers. I use this as I am sitting with students during the editing process during Writer's Workshop. I circle all the sight words that are misspelled. Depending on the grade level you work with you may have to adjust how you implement this in your own classroom. If you are working with 3rd graders, they are expected to know all 220 sight words and be able to apply the correct spelling in their writing. Once I have circled the words, the students are responsible for referring to their word wall and fixing their mistakes. I believe this provides an opportunity for more accountability for the student to help "edit" their own writing. If a word is not on the word wall, such as "friend", the student can ask for help from an adult to make sure they have the correct spelling, and then they add the word to their list. This has worked wonders for me in my 1st grade classroom and is also wonderful for second language learners and ESE students!
