Writing Wall Cards and Teaching Cards Too

I'm excited about this new packet I created.  It did take me awhile to complete because I had to get it just right.  I wanted to make sure the content words that I included in the Writing Wall Cards and Teaching Cards Too were the high frequency writing "content" words.  These are not your ordinary word wall cards.  They are writing specific cards and extremely valuable to grades 4 and up.  However, I believe they would be great in second or third grade too.

Here is how it works:

Step 1: The teacher displays the Word Wall Card to the class and posts it on the word wall board.

Step 2:  The teacher uses the Teaching Word Cards to teach and define the content word.

The best and most effective way to use this packet is with explicit teaching of a small amount of the writing vocabulary words.  It involves explanation, demonstration and practice.  Teach each in a logical order as determined by your lessons and curriculum resources.  

The key to learning content specific words is following this order:
1.  explanation
2.  model
3.  practice
