Teaching first grade for the 1st time, I have been asking for advice from first grade teachers – and the key word I got was “Word Wall”: build it, use it, teach from it. So, I have been hard at work creating stuff for a beautiful word wall (since I can’t get into my room to build it yet). I have made Word Wall Labels with graphics that coordinate with my Alphabet Cards. I have made sight word cards. I have made color word cards with beautiful color (FREE on TPT). I have made number word cards with the numeral on them (FREE on TPT). Now I am finishing up word cards for each word in each word family I will be using, with a graphic that helps my EFL students learn the meanings of the words. I have even created a template that I am going to use on the first day of school to add student names to the word wall (with pictures of students taken on my webcam). I am a little word wall crazy!! I just hope that I will have a big enough wall to create this word wall. How do you get creative with your word wall?
