Word Wall Linky!

Jen from The Teachers' Cauldron is hosting her first linky!  We are all taking snapshots of our word walls to get a little inspiration for next year :)  Here is mine. (I actually put my words back up after state testing for this pic...)






I color code my words so I can refer to them more easily.  I teach 4th grade in Florida which is when we do the state writing assessment. 


Here is my key:


Yellow are my "sentence starters" - "I want to see at least 7 sentence starters in your paper today." 


Red - are commonly misspelled words I find in student papers


Hot Pink - our "hot words" or our "repertoire of words" - these are high-level vocabulary words I find in books we read or just ones I like to use


Orange - external transitions for essay writing


I'd love to see your Word Wall!  Link up!
