Vocabulary Strategies: Vocab Workshop Word Walls, Grades 1–6

I love word walls for the simple fact that they are amazing teaching tools. With them, both my students and I have a permanent reminder of vocabulary words each day. They are also a great reminder for me to use the words in my directions, as well as provides students with vocabulary support in their writing assignments or classroom discussions. How can you go wrong with that!? Let's explore additional benefits of word walls!

Benefits of Word Walls in the Classroom

  • While some students are stronger visual learners and others auditory learners, they are all still affected by what they see. So essentially, word walls benefit all types of learners.

  • Word walls work for any grade! As students move up, word walls can take on new forms and purposes.

  • Instead of guessing how a word is spelled, students can look for it on the wall. Hopefully, over time they will remember how to spell the word on their own.

  • You can add new information and content to them as you go. 

  • Word walls can be used for various subjects. For instance, word walls in math class can provide visual cues and graphic representations of content, and for science, they can help students make connections between concepts.

I’ve had such success with vocabulary word walls in my own classroom that I’ve decided to do a series of word wall downloads for my readers!
