Spelling Series: Interactive Spelling Wall


Welcome back to the Spelling Alternatives for 1st Grade blog series! Here's a sneak peek at the entire series:

Interactive Spelling Wall

"Sharing the pen" is one of my favorite practices that I started last year. It really helps my little firsties to take control of their own learning and feel empowered (AND they just love the smell of using my scented chart markers).

An interactive spelling wall is something I use every Monday to introduce our spelling pattern for the week. It can be used as whole group mini-lesson, a small group mini-lesson, or as a spelling station.

Materials: 
-Large section of a dry erase board -OR- a large piece of chart paper
-Dry erase markers -OR- chart markers

Directions: 
-Design a heading 
-Introduce the pattern
-Have students generate words and add them to the wall

Tip: As you can see towards the bottom, when we run short on time I usually ask for students to call out the remaining words and I write them on there.
