I am finally sitting down to share some new items from a workshop that I recently attended. I know some states do not follow them, but we began our journey about 3 years ago.
Did you know that our brain is actually programmed to see in borders?! The amazing Debbie Diller talks about this, too. I created these word wall header cards for these sweet teachers to use in their rooms…just click on the pic to download some for your classroomtoo!
Research shows that the uniformity helps our kids to process and retain information and the solid background colors that serve as a base for your word walls cut out any additional visual distractions.
I think minimal distractions are so important for our emergent readers! Each one of my babies gets one at the beginning of the year and then they add to it as the year goes on.
You can use vis a vis markers to add words as the year progresses and if the word walls are still in good condition at the end of the year you can save them and reuse them next year, too! Just click on the pic! At the beginning of the year in Kindergarten, our babies struggle with handwriting…most of them, anyway.
I gradually release control as the year …and their handwriting…progresses. The first words that go on the word wall are our names. I usually start the year out with NO words on the wall.
Then we add names after the first couple of days or so. This is an example of what that looks like…. I keep those words on our focus wall and then transfer them to the word wall.
Now that the word wall is set up, what in the world are we supposed to do with it?! It can be challenging to figure out how to incorporate it into everyday classroom happenings and make it relevant. And the kids have SO much fun with it, too!
