Word Wall area in the classroom; paper for writing word;
Word walls support all content areas; in any text, key words
carry the content of the subject field. Identifying and
analyzing these words supports the learning of the content.
During each unit of study, make a plan for identifying the
key vocabulary.
While reading the text, select the words central to the
subject and write them on large paper with a dark
marker. Stop as each word is encountered and record it
in large print on the paper.
Post the words on a wall in an area easy to see in the
classroom. Alternatively, list the words on butcher paper
in a list.
Label the wall by topic or book chapter.
Sort the words in a specific way for words analysis;
alphabetical, syllable length, related root words, etc.
Keep the words as a resource on a chart or in a folder
when the unit is finished.
Have a word wall or list for each chapter in the subject
matter textbook. Use the words for spelling practice,
word analysis, or for the study of parts of speech, root
words, suffixes, etc.
Make a classroom dictionary for each subject field using
the identified word wall terms. Make the dictionary
cumulative for the semester or year.
