I've been meaning to post about my word wall FOR.EV.ER! I posted about it on Instagram this summer and had a lot of feedback from you guys! I wanted to wait until we were a little further into the year to post pictures so you can see what it looks like in action! I am loving it this year!
Each square is a 9x9 sheet of cardstock that I bought in this pack from Hobby Lobby. I originally wanted to use the whole 12x12 sheet but it was just too big when I started laying it out. The 9x9 size has worked out perfectly! You can snag up the little letter labels HERE for free!

My favorite thing this year is the addition of pictures on each letter. I got the idea from Kaci! For homework once a week, I have students cut out pictures that begin with the letter or 2 that we focus on each week from magazines, sales circulars, or whatever they have on hand. This is a GREAT way to differentiate for those kiddos who need the little extra support. Especially in the beginning of the year, we can look to the word wall to generate words that begin with a certain letter. It's fun to watch the word wall get fuller as the year goes on!
With this addition, my kids take ownership in the word wall and they LOVE the environmental print! Do you see the "Target" on T? Minnie and Mickey on M? Dalmatians on D? Ninja Turtles on T?
I LOVE teaching sight words! I'll be back tomorrow to show you a few fun things I do to teach them!
