This product is intended to be used as part of everyday reading and writing. I would suggest making two copies of the word wall you want to focus on; one for your students’ writing folder and one for their reading folder. By your having three different leveled word walls, you will be sure to meet the needs of all your diverse learners!
Kids should be referring to their word wall often as a strategy for spelling. The word walls are leveled and that means that the first one is intended for Kindergarten students or those reading on levels A-D (Fountas & Pinell) or Reading Recovery Levels 1-6. The next word wall could be used with first graders as most first graders are reading between a level D-I or 5/6-15/16 and the last one could be used with second graders because the words that are displayed would be most commonly found in text levels 16-M. As you can see there is overlapping between the word walls because it is not an exact science…YET! Also, many words that are repeated are most likely a word that kids have difficulty mastering how to read or write. It has not become automatic.
In any event, all three word walls can be edited so that you can add more words or words that your district mandates you teach. I have also provided a blank so you can build your own.
If you were one of the lucky ones to have a poster maker, these would be great to enlarge.
There is also a PDF file that you can print and use as is with the words I have included.
