Word Walls for Older Grades

For Word Walls

Word Walls With A Twist... Or a Ring!

Sometimes word walls can get too crowded, especially when they're used in higher grades. One trick that works well is binder rings of words.

Simply laminate small cards of words and using a single whole punch, put all the words for each given letter on the binder ring. On your bulletin board, you will need 26 push pins to hang each group of words. This makes the words handy for students. When students need the spelling of a word that begins with t, they grab the ring containing all the t words.

Word walls should be growing all year, those pretty word walls that become static are nowhere near as effective as a growing word wall.

These tips come from great classrooms and sharing helps everyone,  as always, if you have a tip to share, I'd love to hear from you to keep the sharing going.
