Word Wall Kit for first grade! Words! Headers! Title!
A word wall is as equally important as a well-stocked classroom library. The word wall should be a focal point in your room and be interactive. Words should be seen from across the room and should be either displayed with magnets attached to the backs or Velcro™. This was kids can take a word from the word wall and bring it back to his/her seat to use it during writing.
Words should be introduced and taught at the rate of five words a week. The only words at the beginning of the year that should be on your wall are kids’ names and kindergarten sight words. As you teach the words through a poem of the week or another authentic experience or text, you add them to your wall.
After you have introduced them at the beginning of each week, you should provide practice each day. This can be with whiteboards, magnetic letters, or paper and pencil. Included are ways to teach sight words.
There are two sets of high frequency and/or sight words. The black set should be printed on colored cardstock and I would suggest a green to match the scheme of this product. The other set is outlined in light green and black and match the headers for your wall and the title, “Our Word Wall”.
I have also included two sets of templates of the frames I used if you want to add additional words to match. I used KBTeach font, K26 AlphaSans, to make the words pop. The font is big and bold.
The words for this word wall are words that would easily be found in text levels D-I but it is not an exhaustive list so that is why I have included the templates.
I have provided a few different options for the vowel headers. Many people like them to stand out so you can choose which you would like.
The words in this product are:
