Here is a
an awful picture of my classroom word wall:
It hangs above my whiteboard at the front of my classroom where all my students can see it. You can't really tell from the picture, but it has a seashore theme! The vowels are starfish and the consonants are seashells. I really like that all the words are in such bright colors as well. I put it up 2 years ago...and well it just stays there...it's very hard for me to reach those words (even standing on a desk)!
I found this spinner at the Dollar Store a couple years back and we use it to play a word wall game. We play at snack time because that's when we have some extra time and it keeps them calm (and seated) while they're eating.
I'm not sure if the spinner is available anymore, so I created my own set of (free!) word wall games just for all of you! It's four different games, in color and BW, for you to play with your students. Just click on the picture to grab it from my TpT store!
If you do grab it, I'd love to hear what you think!
