Portable Word Wall

Every now and then I am hit with what a bright idea (at least it seems bright to me!) and today it happened and I was SO excited because I have been trying to decide a solution to this for awhile now! We have a big word wall down in our school room, here’s a photo of part of it.We filled it up with our Kindergarten words and I really want to leave it up so it will be there when my toddler is ready to begin learning ABC’s and words. BUT, I didn’t want to use this word wall for 1st grade, partly because we have more words and there isn’t space for the size and also we have begun to do school upstairs more and more (not in our actual schoolroom). So, I have went back and forth about what to do until today! I looked over and noticed a foam project board thing I had for something else and it hit me…a portable word wall! Here’s what I created, using the letter cards and actual words from his 1st grade Calvert curriculum. I also like that we can keep this and make a new word wall each grade level. It folds up to a poster board size and stores away so easily, I am so happy!
