This is what I use to set-up my interactive word wall! My word wall is my most valuable and used resource (with training!) in my classroom. I set up my word wall in a low space that is easily accesible by my students (in my classrooms this has been under my whiteboard, on the back of my manipulative shelf etc.).
I tape the header cards to the wall and then attach a strip a velcro underneath and velcro on the back of the cards so that the cards are easy to remove and use! You could use magnets on the back if you have an accessible magnet wall space too!
The header circles are 7 x 7cm (2.76” x 2.76”)
or 9 x 9 cm (3.54" x 3.54")
and the cards are 3.5 x 12cm (1.37” x 4.72”)
The header cards come in black and white and colour. It has the uppercase letter, lower case letter an image that matches the initial sound and the corresponding word. Most images are the same for black and white but some images are not due to design differences. Please see the list below for the image for each letter:
A - apple
B - baby
C - cat
D - dog (b&w), dinosaur (colour)
E - elephant
F - feet (b&w), feather (colour)
G - goat
H - hippo
I - igloo
J - jellyfish
K - kangaroo
L - ladybug
M - monkey
N - needle
O - octopus
P - pirate
Q - queen

I have also included ring covers for each list if you want to sort the sight word by list and put them on a binder ring to place at your writing centre instead of making a word wall!
