HOW TO ASSEMBLE
Start by choosing the colors you’d like to use. You only need to print one word wall sign and one set of letter cards. For the Word Wall sign, you will cut it in half and use clear tape to attach the halves. Then print the word cards on pages 40-50. If you want to include more words, you can print page 51 and write them on the cards, or you can use the editable file included in this resource. To use the editable file, you will need Microsoft PowerPoint and also the font KG Red Hands
, which is free for personal use. I suggest printing all pages on card stock and laminating for durability.
SETTING UP YOUR WORD WALL
You are welcome to set up your word wall any way you’d like. This is what I do: I put my word wall on the bottom half of a whiteboard so that my students have easy access to it. The Word Wall sign and all of the letter cards have magnets on the back. Then I hang Command hooks below each letter card, punch a hole in the word cards, and hang them on a metal ring. When my students are looking for a word, they take the letter ring down, find what they need, and return it when they’re finished.
Please let me know if you have any questions! Thanks for taking a look!
