Blogging here for my summer Setting Up series! I am having so much fun collecting ideas and sharing them with you. Today, we are going to chat about classroom word walls. There are many different options for word walls, but the vast majority of primary classrooms use word walls for sight words and high-frequency words. I will show a few ideas for math word walls and even content words. I hope you find some great ideas today!
If anyone is like me, setting up the word wall is MUCH easier than keeping up with the word wall throughout the year. I can help you with the first part and merely give you the motivation to keep up with it during your busy school year. 😉
