Word Walls



I have to say that the mileage for providing input using word walls this year has to be a record.  I teach both present and past tenses with beginning learners and even though I do this from the very beginning of the year, I never stop pointing to these.

Students see and experience the usage of these words walls in all tenses and from different perspectives. The reason I keep pointing to these is that some (not all) students still need to see them.



I make these word walls by taping different color butcher paper on the board where my classroom projector shines.  I find a font I like, trace the words, and usually have a student or two color them in with markers.  I cut them in clouds because I love the idea of these high frequency words floating around all year. As time goes by (or for certain assessments) I remove the English translations.
