My word wall spans one and a half walls in my room. All kindergarten words are in red, first grade words are in yellow, second grade words are in green, and words frequently used in writing are in orange. My younger students love to boast that they can spell words from higher grades correctly and I sometimes point out to my second graders that they are misspelling words that they learned in kindergarten.
My students and I love to play word wall games and I have a plethora of word wall activity sheets that the children use when they are finished with their station work. My students' favorite word wall games to play are definitely Sparkle and Hangman. Of course there are many more games that we play, but these two are the most requested games.
Another popular game is my Sight Word Memory Game. My students play this all the time and love it!
When my students are done with their station work, they can choose an "I'm done, what can I do now activity?" Many of the activities involve the word wall. My kindergartners and first graders spend quality time completing many of the worksheets from this packet:
Between word wall games, word wall worksheets, sight word packets, etc., I think I've pretty much got it covered! LOL!
I look forward to reading about everyone else's favorite word wall activities and seeing pictures of all those wonderful word walls out there! Here's the link so you can join the fun!
