Weekend Warriors: Moving Word Wall!

Welcome back to Weekend Warriors!


I'm super excited to tell you about this Pinspirational Idea!

This idea came from Elizabeth over at Kickin' it in Kindergarten.
Last summer, my team and I moved into a different school.  
My new classroom didn't have as much wall space as my old room.
I was really worried about what to do with my word wall!!!!

Then I saw Elizabeth's idea and I HAD to try it!
So I created a moving word wall!!!


Best idea ever!
I keep our weekly words in our morning meeting area.
On Friday, I move them over to the word wall.
So our word wall grew slowly each week.
Whenever the kids need words, they grab the letter they need, find the word, and put it back.

I've also used it for practicing words.
They'd grab a letter or two and practice with a friend!

I color-coded my words so that I knew which unit they came from.
At the beginning of the year, I was a little worried about letters going missing.
But we never lost one set!!
The kids were great about putting them back in the right spot.
I had a little stool next to it to reach to top row. 

Our moving word wall takes up much less space and is much more interactive! :)
You should try it!!

Thanks for stopping by!
