Individual Word Walls have helped my students get through their writing so much easier. And as an added benefit, I don’t spend as much time spelling words over and over again to the same students. When a student asks me to spell a word, I will not spell it for them until they have their WW opened up to the correct page to write it down. These little books have come in very handy!
All you need is a small memo book, some colored paper, scissors, glue, and some stickers or anything you want for decorating. I actually found the memo books on sale at Walgreens 6/$1, so these didn’t cost me much! The other supplies I had laying around the house.
1. Trace the cover of the memo book on the colored paper, an then cut it out.
2. Decorate the colored paper with the design of your choice.
3. Glue the cover onto the memo book.
4. Count out the pages and divide them so that each letter gets an appropriate amount of space.
There you have it. Individual word walls within 15 minutes–or 5 for most boys!! 😉
