Unique Vowel Sound Word Wall - A New Idea - Enjoy!
Having experience teaching first and second grade reading groups for quite a while, I realized that word walls organized alphabetically by initial letter was not what most students needed.
Soon after, I began organizing my word wall according to vowel sounds. This had an immediate impact on my teaching and my students.
Everyone, despite reading level, had to think about vowel sounds in a new way. My leveled groups each found the new grouping a challenge, though in different ways.
Word wall games became more of a challenge simply because the focus had changed. Just think how I Spy would be effected by this new grouping of words!
Included are first grade sample words, red words, contractions, days of the week, months of the year, and frequently misspelled words.
These words may also be used as flashcards.
Just let me know what I can do to help you use my materials. Thanks, Patti
