The materials included in this word wall will help build your students’ awareness of letters, sounds, and vocabulary words! There are an endless amount of activities that can be done using this word wall, and many can be differentiated to meet a range of learners.
Preparation: Print, cut, and laminate all pieces. I attached magnets to the back of my pieces to make a moveable word wall.
There are many uses for this word wall! Here are a few suggestions.
Whole Group Use:
-Play guessing games by giving a letter sound and clues about a word- “I’m thinking of a word that starts with /m/ and can be worn on your hand”
-Take several words down and invite students to put them back by finding the correct letter category
Small Group or Individual Use:
-Provide students with clipboards to copy words they know
-Use magnet letters for students to spell words from cards
Blank Slides: Blank slides are included so that you can customize your word wall! You will need to download Kimberly Geswein’s “What the Teacher Wants” font (available through TPT!) if you’d like to match the font included with this word wall. You may like to include children’s names, high frequency words, or other vocabulary words that your class uses.
