    Word Wall in First Grade
    By kbbteacher

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I put my word wall words on velcro, so that students can take the word from the wall and use it at their seat. Our first grade team does [this]:

    Each week we have 5 new words and each day of the week is a diff. activity:

    Monday- we introduce the words and put them in ABC order

    Tuesday- Rhyme Time- I say "the word wall word I am thinking of rhymes with...."

    Wednesday- Secret Sentence- I make up a sentence for each word (I try to make a story) and they have to fill the appropriate word in the blank

    Thursday- Hot Seat- I pick a student to sit in the hot seat in front of the other children. The students are in charge of giving 3 clues for the chosen word wall word. This is good recall for the children, but I have also let the hot seat student have the words in front of them to help decide what the word is

    Friday- Mystery Word- this is like hot seat but I am giving the clues to the class

    We always clap and chant as a review before we start these activities...
