This word wall set is for the Kindergarten Reading Street 2013 Common Core Edition curriculum. The set includes the 40 high frequency words and the 387 short vowel words that are introduced in themes 1-5 of Reading Street. Theme 6 is a review of words from themes 1-5.
Each word is on a chalkboard black background with a white dashed border. Making the cards pop on any word wall. On each card the theme and week is indicated at the bottom right corner. This will make it easy to file your cards away by the weeks the words are introduced. Example 3.2 stands for theme 3 week 2. If the cards are used for two weeks both weeks are indicated on the cards.
The words are easily color coded by high frequency words and short vowels.
high frequency words- white
short a- green
short e- yellow
short i- blue
short o- orange
The word cards are approximately 1 1/2" by 2 1/2". I do not have a lot of room for words on my word wall so this size made it easy to fit lots of words. The font size is 75 on most words, making the words large enough to read in the classroom.
I made two sets of the cards. One for my word wall and the other for whole group instruction. I simply put the cards under the document camera and projected the cards on the promethean board for the students to read together. The cards can also be used in small group instruction and centers.
I hope you enjoy using these word wall cards on your word wall and in your classroom.
