As teachers, we are constantly referring to various terms in our content areas that we want students to know. I designed this word wall resource as a tool to display common ELA terminology in my middle school classroom. I am always looking for ways to make classroom decor mix with thoughtful teaching practices.
Follow these steps to make the most of these ELA Word Wall Cards:
• Print and cut out the letters in the Word Wall Letters file or utilize your own pre-made letters.
• Print out the Word Wall Cards. You can print in black and white or color.
I chose to laminate my word wall cards because I am displaying them in a space where I want students to have access to them, but laminating is not necessary.
• Display your word wall in a space where it is visible to students. I have eye-level cabinets that I utilize to display my ELA Word Wall.
