This is my word wall after a few weeks of school...after I have done some mini lessons during writing workshop about environmental print and added them to the wall, we have done lots of name activities and the students names have been added and the star (sight) words that have been introduced have been added. Later, during a writing unit about writing special memories, common words that pertain to 5 and 6 year olds will be added. I cut up an alphabet poster to make my word wall. I also included in this post word wall tests that I use as a work station. In my tests I include student's pictures and star words, but made these to go along with the special memories words.
