Fancy Word Wall
I usually place a thesaurus in the area and a few Fancy Nancy books for motivation. The children then work with partners to come up with fancy words to replace the plain words in the starburst included in this packet. Then these are also displayed.
During free time or anytime the students do not has any assigned work, , they make fancy word sticks with colored sticks and they write the word on the stick from the thesaurus, in pencil, show it to me for approval of spelling and then trace with markers that are in the station. Then they decorate the sticks with pom-poms, glitter sticker stars or whatever else I have put in the station. After they complete the stick, they place it into the correct pocket, which have been pre-made. I then encourage the students to use the “Fancy” Word Wall for words in their writing. I also have students fill in the worksheets included in this packet as a Word Work Station during Daily 5 or Literacy Stations.
Enjoy this Dollar Deal. Thank you for purchasing, downloading, following and inspiring. I hope this brings a little sunshine to your day!
