How and why to use word walls with older students

See this website for information about wordwalls and many activities to support vocabulary instruction

Great post about how and why to use word walls with older students - think about all the vocabulary words we have in social studies!

How and why to use word walls with older students. I'd have to adjust based on time, but sounds interesting.

This contains information about how and why teachers should use word walls with older students. Word walls can enrich vocabulary learning, even for older students. For example, students can read independently and record at least one word they are not strongly familiar with. The class will discuss the word, determine the definition, and place it on the wall for future reference.

This word wall provides students with a visual of the root word and prefix and/or suffix. I do this and it's a good visual reminder!

Create a word wall specifically dedicated to words with prefixes and suffixes. Root words are written on white paper and suffixes and prefixes on different colored paper.

Create a word wall specifically dedicated to words with prefixes and suffixes. Root words are written on white paper and suffixes and prefixes on different colored paper. I really like the color coded differentiation to help students recognize the word parts.

Word wall cheers- blogger uses an empty Cheer laundry detergent bottle to place these cheers in and practices spelling word wall words with the cheers. SO CUTE!!

I'm picturing the kids using these cards to practice in pairs as one of our Wed. spelling activities.....they're just silly enough for fourth graders that they'll be laughing like crazy when they do it!

Wall Word Cheers...maybe wouldn't use as much for the word wall in Pre-K since we don't teach spelling, but I'm sure I can find a use for these. They are really cool!

Word Wall Cheers...for practicing weekly spelling words. The kids will LOVE these!

"The game is simple. You take turns drawing cards out of a container. If you can read the sight word you keep the card. If not, the card goes back in. Whoever collects the most cards wins the game. Beware of the BANG cards though. If you draw one, you have to put back all of the cards you have collected." STI loves this idea! Use unit review questions, instead of sight words, for middle schoolers!

BANG SIGHT WORD GAME! Take turns drawing cards out of a container. If kid can read the sight word, keep the card. If not, the card goes back in. Whoever collects the most cards wins the game. If kid draws one of the BANG cards, has to put back all of the cards collected....

Sight word chants

Sight word chants...new ones to add! =) My kids love doing these when we introduce new Word Wall Words.

Sight Word Chants . . . lots of ways to have children practice saying the letters to sight (or spelling) words. A free download is included to make this awesome popsicle stick set of chant options (store them in a can and grab one for each word you review).

Spelling word/Sight word chants. Definitely more useful for little ones than middle schoolers, but good ideas.

Sight word chants...downloadable pdf for making your own sticks. This will be a fun way to practice our spelling words!

Sight word chants...a ton of really fun ways to practice how to spell words.

Instead of sight word chants, I plan to use this for word wall chants.

I love Word Walls :)

Word Wall spinner. Even if you did not use this as a spinner, having the students do each of the four steps will help them do things in their own words, a picture is always helpful for visual learners and putting it in a sentence is going to let them make sure they are fully understanding the word.

I have a pretty good size bulletin board, but my squares for each letter seem so small. Too small to use the normal sentence strip paper.

I color coordinate our words. The dark pink are words that we covered during the first week of ABC review. The lighter pink ones were covered during the second week. The orange words are Unit One words. From Life in First Grade: bulletin boards

Learning Ideas - Grades K-8: Using Word Walls with Kids in Math

math word walls - Google Search

A word wall is most likely unfamiliar to most high school teachers or is something that may have been encountered in an elementary classroom.  As part of a balanced literacy approach, word walls are being used in elementary classrooms as a means of promoting vocabulary growth leading ultimately to improvement in literacy.  There are many reasons, based in research, for the study of vocabulary as an explicit daily activity.  From building prior knowledge to providing contextualized information to simply providing students with high-frequency words that will be encountered in particular units of study, no matter what the justification or rationale, no matter what the grade level and no matter what the subject area, word walls are and extremely effective learning and teaching tools. As you are thinking about using word walls remember that those for the content area are the vocabulary words you use to help students understand important concepts.  That means your word walls can be the basis for vocabulary games and activities – the more the better. The purpose of the Mathematics Word Wall is to identify words and phrases that students  need  to  understand  and  use  so  as  to  make  good  progress  in  mathematics.  Mathematical language is crucial to children's development of thinking. If students do not have the vocabulary to talk about math concepts and skills, they cannot make progress in understanding these areas of mathematical knowledge. They need to be familiar with mathematical vocabulary and mathematical terms to understand written and spoken instructions.   Some links to great sites that have more information and examples of math word walls are below: http://learningideasgradesk-8.blogspot.com/ http://www.broward.k12.fl.us/PDF/MathWordWall.pdf http://datadeb.files.wordpress.com/2009/11/001-word-wall-post-for-blog.pdf http://www.markville.ss.yrdsb.edu.on.ca/mm/oise2005/bestpractice/wordwall.htm
