My Own Word Wall

Our first graders receive resource binders to keep in their "seat sacks." These binders include reference pages for math (120 chart, number word page), literacy, and more. It's similar to a "mini-office" except that it's in a binder format. Every student receives a "personal word wall" page with sight words, plus a blank word wall to fill in throughout the year:
The above picture shows both pages (we print them double-sided). To read more about the resource binders and pick up your own word wall copy, please click here!
