Word wall

I received this great message and picture from Jeanne Messmer, a third-grade teacher in Arcadia, Indiana:

“Debbie, I am a third grade teacher, and was at your workshop in Lafayette, IN. I talked with you about arranging my Word Wall Words around my Read Aloud books instead of in ABC order. I have attached a picture of the books I have read aloud this year, and the vocabulary words we talked about. I find it very useful to have the words connected to a story we have shared. The students find the words in books they are reading independently, and I use the words as much as possible in my teaching.”
