• abcs Our "Word Wall" is
    a list of sight words that first graders frequently use in their writing. These words are introduced at the rate of 5 per week. Word wall words often don't fit into "traditional" spelling patterns. Many of them cannot be sounded out phonetically.  The words are reviewed weekly and used to add more vocabulary to the children's written work. The words are arranged alphabetically, and during Writers' Workshop, as well as other writing times, children can refer to the Word Wall when they need to spell a basic sight word.
