    Portable Word Walls

    First- what will be the purpose of your word wall? Do you want just the word up for reference when writing/ talking about the subject? Or do you want pictures to help the def. "stick" in the students' minds?

    I just use a LARGE pocket chart and sentence strips for my word wall. My purpose is just to have the words for reference.

    Since your kids don't just stay in your room, you may want to think about portable word walls. Use file folders for each student.

    If you want to use visuals, you can use google images or have students draw the picture. I have had students "draw the word". For example, if they write Lasso, each letter would be made out of a lasso.

    You could also use Chart Paper and have a different paper for each subject/ topic.
