A student-generated word wall is an essential component for dual language instruction, but you know what? It's JUST GOOD TEACHING no matter your audience!
1) Gather students in discussion area and letter by letter, ask for nouns that start with each letter. I collected two words for each letter.
2) Give an example of what you want students to do. I have students First- write word; Second- color letter; Third- do a neat/color illustration that takes up as much of the white space as possible.
3) Distribute papers to students & get them working
You can also get my K-2 sight words and place these alphabet illustrations above the list of words that go with that letter. Enjoy!
