I’ve always loved the idea of a word wall, but we just don’t have space for it in our small school room. Word Walls can increase vocabulary, be a fun way to reinforce spelling, and spark great writing activities.
Due to our lack of wall space, I had written off using word walls in our homeschool.
Last week, I created a Spelling Dictionary for my daughter using ordinary file folders. Then it dawned on me:
I can create a File Folder Word Wall.
Woo hoo! And our wall space problem is now solved!
Fall Word Wall Using File Folders
Instead of using a pocket chart, or placing words on a wall or bulletin board, I made my 2nd grader a word wall that is glued inside of a regular file folder.
This particular word wall focuses on vocabulary you would use during the fall season. I have many more file folders in the works, so be on the lookout for those!
I love to increase my children’s vocabularies through reading good literature and using fun activities. This word wall is just the supplement to use with our fun Fall reading!
What’s Included in the Fall Word Wall Packet?
In addition to a colorful list of fall vocabulary words, I added 10 printables that can easily be tucked into the file folder.
When it’s time to work on vocabulary or we just have a few extra minutes, my daughter can easily take out her Fall Folder.
She loves it!
In this Fall Word Wall packet, you’ll find:
- 2 colorful lists of Fall Words, which include a picture for each word; includes 32 words total
- Colorful cover page
