Portable Word Walls...they are finally here!

When I first started blogging I wrote about my portable word walls..and that became my most looked at post. Well...I am finally finished creating my own version of these thematic words!! I have had many emails asking if I sell these..well now I do :)



I introduce these words at the beginning of the year and they stay in the writing center to assist the students in journal writing, creative stories, choosing topics, writing letters, cards, etc.  
As we are learning a specific theme, I will have the students use these to create their own 'portable word wall' to use throughout the thematic unit. This way they have access to the words they will be using daily. 
Student examples from the beginning of the year...

 If you would like to purchase this unit, click on any of the pictures above! :) Would love to hear your feedback as well!
If you have a blog of your own and you are willing to blog about these....comment below and I will send the first 3 people this unit for free!!

Enjoy!!

  8. These are great! I use word rings with my students (some just do not use the word wall and do better with holding their words) but now I may just have to add the portable word walls next year! Thanks for sharing. =) Oh...I'm now a new follower!

  10. I love these portable word walls, especially because students get to make their own when you reach a particular theme. What a great idea that can span across grade levels!

  14. How do you introduce this at the beginning of the school year? Are your students writing the words on their own at the beginning?

    ReplyDelete
  15. We go over the words together and I model an example. My goal for them at the beginning of the year may be to only draw pictures and use the right colors or it may be to draw 3 pictures and COPY the words underneath the picture. I depends on my class. I may even have different goals for different kids. But, in the past, most students were able to copy the words form my examples onto theirs :)

  17. Hi! Great idea! How do you store these in your classroom when the kids are not using them? I was thinking of putting a key ring in a corner or along the top and hanging from hooks near the kids' desks. What do you do?

  18. That would be a great idea, M Buzz. I actually keep them in a bin that just slides onto one of my shelves :)
