As the year comes to a close and I should be working on report cards, I can't help but start to plan for next year. I started thinking about my word wall and how it really doesn't stand out. Right now it is a white board and the words are printed on white card stock. White on white a little boring- right. I wanted something that stood out, but wouldn't be too distracting. As much as I'd love cute polka dot borders or colored backgrounds for my words- I decided against the business of it all and just changed the vowels to blue and added a black border to the words.
