This set has 12 pages that serve as a booklet. Each page has 1-2 letters on it with an image at the top to help students find the correct beginning sound AND the corresponding letter at the bottom of each page. There are already over 50 words that are frequently asked about their spelling in my room. Each page is only a half page with black line images for less cartridge use, and fewer copies! This makes this an eco-friendly resource for all teachers.
Word walls. Aren't they great? But, they take up so much space, and each kid needs to know different words. How do you keep up? This is how I do it.
Each student gets a "Walking Word Wall" that can travel with them - between classes, in journals, to groups, etc. When a student asks how to spell a word, you can walk them through WHERE to put the word (visuals at the top of each page and the corresponding letter at the bottom) in the book and tell them HOW to spell it. The student now has that word written, so they won't have to ask again. This also gives students confidence to write larger words/vocabulary. Do you have a perfectionist in your room who takes a long time spelling words? This helps tremendously.
It's an easy fix to the spelling questions. Later into the year, you may find students asking other students HOW to spell certain words. These students then turn around and put this into their own walking word wall. They are learning to work together, use their resources, and show their confidence!
Think about it... if you have 22 students in your room, it'll be about $0.11/student! That's a steal of a deal for something so beneficial for your classroom.
