Word Wall – Reading and Writing

Word Wall – Reading and Writing

In primary- grade classrooms, many educators prominently display a list of target words that are commonly found in printed material. An ideal reading and writing wall word displays sight words, phonograms and irregular words.

Sight words would entail the high frequency or most common English words. A phonogram is a fancy word for rime; the following examples are common rhymes: _at, _ed, _it, _op & _ug . Irregular words are phonetically irregular; they do not follow typical spelling or phonics rules. If applicable, include those words students tend to misspell in the writing exercises.

Word Wall Instruction

The above word wall list contains sight words, phonograms and common rhymes. A word wall develops throughout the school year. The words selected depend upon the students and the decoding and spelling skills being taught. In general, select five words a week that coincide with the lesson plans. Work with these words every day to build automaticity and fluency in reading and writing. Using a wall word is a great tool to help a child learn to read and write.
