Word Wall Ideas and Giveaway Reminder


I should be in my classroom next Tuesday! I can’t wait to start working and putting everything together. This week I have been printing out all of the things I have made and bought from TPT. I’m using a record breaking amount of ink and cardstock.

My main focus today has been putting together everything I need for my popcorn word wall. After printing out my word cards I decided that I wanted to add some sort of background to them. I am a really visual person and I know that colors really help things stick in my head. So, I really wanted to use different colors to help the words stand out to my kids.  I LOVE these index cards! Much better than using expensive color ink! : )

Red, yellow, green, blue and black polka dots! 

I just printed and glued all of my popcorn words in the middle of each card and ta-da a perfect border! My popcorn word wall cards fit perfectly on any type of index card.


Then, this is how I organize my word cards.

Please ignore the fact that I need to print and add a cute label. #forgiveme


The index card holder  keeps things organized and the alphabet tabs make it super easy to find the word card I need. 

Don't forget my 100 followers giveaway is almost over! Scroll down or click HERE to enter! Good luck!

  2. Congrats on getting to go into your new room. That is really fun! Your cards look great! It looks like you have a lot of words too. How many words do you put on your K word wall? (I am a new follower)

    1. I have word cards for the 100 HFW from Fountas and Pinnell plus the number words and colors. There is no way I would ever display all of the words or use them at once. But, I wanted to make sure that I have them to choose from : )

  12. Wish I could find index cards this cute in NZ! No luck so far :( I am a beginning teacher and what I really want to know is when do you change your words around? I understand the not putting them up all at once but when do I rotate them? I'm so caught up in everything else that it feels a bit like something I'd never get round to...
