Personal Word Wall Printables

Personal Word Wall Printables



In the past I have used a few different kinds of word walls.  Most recently I used a large portable word wall with Krash when he did You Can Read.  For Ladybug, I wanted simple and small and opted for a personal word wall in a file folder. I created some simple printables, trimmed the edges, glued them in and DONE!

As we go through You Can Read, we will add words to her word wall once she can read them independently. You can see in the photo below the words she knows in the letter A section.  I am writing in pencil in case we make any mistakes.

I added a handwriting chart to the back side of the word wall, for easy reference in case needed.  I had some extra space so it seemed like a logical addition.

What is a Word Wall?

Here is an official definition from Wikipedia.  Here is another article about word walls. Basically it is a place to display words a child has learned or is learning.  We use ours for high frequency words in Kindergarten, only putting up words as they are learned.

We use a tri-fold foam board {ours was $10 from Target} for our Word Wall, it looks like this…IMG_0785

For the letters I found these Elmer’s sticky ABCsimage

They were wonderful because I could move them around until I had the exact placement and then I glued them down with a glue stick.

For the words, I am using the cards from the You Can Read printables, printed on cardstock and laminated.

They are hooked to the board using tiny Velcro dots, which I bought in bulk from here.  I used velcro so we can take the words off at any times to play games and review.IMG_1141

 

After Krash has a good knowledge of the word, we add it to the word wall, and review often.  Review is especially important as the list of words grows.

I do not put word family words on this board {cat, mat, rat, sat, etc.}, just his basic sight words that I want him to be able to identify without sounding out, just by sight.

In the past I have had our word wall up on our actual wall, similar to how I did it in the classroom.  You can see my post about when I transitioned to portable word walls.  I like the idea of it being up on the main wall, but I like the idea of being able to better interact with the words using the portable word wall.
