    Last year I laminated my word wall words, and the students couldn't see many of them from the carpet because of the glare (ack!) After the laminate disaster, I put up a felt background and just wrote the words on sentence strip paper, cut them apart, and put them up with velcro. They lasted all year and the students could easily manipulate them. For the beginning of the year, I found it very valuable to put up student names (along with pictures) as part of the word wall. The student names were very helpful in learning phonemic letter sounds and blends, and we referred to them often.

    My problem with the word wall is ... its HUGE! Any ideas how to make it a bit smaller? I love putting student work up on my walls, and my word wall takes up much too much space!
