    Word Wall

    Hi! I just teach math, but I do use a word wall for my 4th/5th grade math students. I get the words from the vocabulary they are required to know for our state math test. I also include other math words I think it is important for them to see daily. I put the words up as we discuss them. I organize the words into the 5 NCTM math categories (numbers and operations, geometry, algegra, measurement & data analysis and probability) and put each category on a different color word strip. The words are also grouped by letter.

    I also make index cards with the definitions of words on the word wall. I pull out the cards whenever we have a few minutes to spare in class and quiz the kids. The students see the words everyday, use the word wall as a reference when writing, and it's a great way to review vocabulary.
