What is a word wall?


A word wall- pared de palabras is a collection of words on a wall or  bulletin board in a classroom that are displayed in large visible letters. 

Every elementary school classroom should have a word wall. It provides kids with immediate access to the words they will read, speak, and write on a regular basis.

Word Wall Headers

Many of my kids struggled to find a word at the beginning of the year because they had not yet developed their letter/sound relationships. When you asked them to check under B on the letter card, they didn't know what it meant because they didn't know what a B looked like. I decided to make my own header cards with a picture cues on them so that the kids could build letter-sound connections throughout the year!

How Do You Use Word Walls in The Classroom?

In my classroom, I set up my word wall on my largest wall. I like to make sure that kids can see the Word Wall from any classroom area. In our room, we have several tables, all of which are close to the Word Wall. Students frequently walk to get a closer look, and I am always happy to see my students using it.

I tape the header cards to the wall and then attach a strip of Velcro underneath and 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!
