We have created a word wall for our third project in a row and the children have really begun to use it to their advantage. The words are meaningful and the children use these words to label their work. We learned from Pam Scranton in one training that she had always told her class to write their words on their work before they were done. This could be based on the child’s ability and could be as long as a sentence to as short as letter like symbols or scribbles which can be translated and documented on to their work.
6.16.11 Elisabeth (4.10) asks Mahi to add the words that the children have learned about the car seat to the baby word wall. Elisabeth uses a large piece of chart paper and copies all of the words she has learned so far. Eila (4.0) joins her and writes the last two words.
