An update on our focus wall

I have been playing around with our front wall that has our Anchor Charts and Word Walls.
 
Our Word Wall was too big - took up too much room. It didn't flow and the words didn't stand out.
 
I wanted a smaller one and wanted to move around the posters, so it was a bit more organised.
 
I am a bit obsessed with the graphics from Melonheadz and Scrappin Doodles at the moment.
 
So these cute kids have a letter each and a picture that relates to that letter/sound.
 
They look great and are smaller and work for us at the moment and fit so much better under our Smartboard.
 
I love that they are there, as some of my kids work on the floor to write and the words they need are just there at eye level for them.
 

 Now the anchor charts sit better and I have room to add some more writing prompt posters - watch this space for more photos later in the week.
 
The  Daily5 Anchor Charts are free in my stores.

The blue posters - I am happy to email in PDF form for any followers of my blog.

  1. Your new word wall looks terrific. I really love the daily five posters you made so I'm heading over to your tpt for a closer look. Thanks for sharing. Trusting your weekend is relaxing.

  2. Your word wall looks fantastic - what a great idea to have each of the students holding a letter! I have our sight words colour coded based on the M100 just like yours - it definitely helps them to find the word they need. My Word Wall is also taking up too much room so I'm thinking of moving it to a window!
