PORTABLE WORD WALLS
Portable word walls allow students to access words wherever they go. Grab & Go Portable Word Walls provide you with two formats of word lists to use with your students. Placing the word walls around the room helps you create a print-rich environment where literacy abounds! Students can use the word walls to develop vocabulary, expand knowledge of thematic concepts, aid in writing, and so much more. All children will benefit from these word walls in so many ways!
Hang the large lists from a mini anchor chart stand and place in your writing center, post the large list on the
wall, or create a binder with all the different word lists. Posting the word lists in your classroom, helps you to create a print rich environment that students can access continually. These lists can also be printed 2 or 4 to a page to create another set of smaller word lists.
The small format of the word lists in set up vertically. Hang the cards on a metal ring and hang them from hooks on the wall to create a word station. Students are then able to take the word lists to their work space. This is especially helpful for students that have difficulty copying words from across the room, or difficulty with focusing attention. Having the words and pictures directly in front of their learning space is beneficial for many students.
Create your own portable word wall station out of a tri-fold board. Check out the DIY directions here.
Listing of Monthly Themes
The portable word walls also come in monthly editions. This allows you to provide a variety of thematic words to your students at one low price! I enjoy using the monthly format, because students are able to access many themes in one set of word lists. The monthly editions are available in a bundle; as well as by individual months. The Growing Bundle of the monthly editions allows you to purchase a years worth of word lists at a low, low price. The price will increase as each month is added to the bundle. Get your bundle here!
