3 Word Banks Word Walls As students acquire a sight word, add it to a word wall. A sample list has been provided on page 13. There are several methods of arranging word walls. One method is to place the alphabet letters around the room, leaving space for words to be placed under the beginning letter of the word (e.g., under A on the wall, the class might add alligator, apple, and ape). The teacher can prompt the addition of words to the wall, while allowing students to actually make the suggestions. This inspires ownership in the process of collecting words. Word walls also reinforce the use of conventional spellings during independent writing. Word Charts Post charts to list category words from themes, topics, or parts of speech. Have students help create a list of words for each chart. Display the word charts so that students can refer to them during independent writing. Collect words related to themes, such as animals, or from stories in texts or books. Use pictures or icons on the charts to make it easy for students to understand what each list is composed of. For example, a picture of a group of animals at the top of the Animals Word Chart would remind students that animal words can be found on that chart. Parts of Speech Charts are helpful to young writers. Like the noun-centered charts (see Thematic Words above), illustrations should accompany the words on Parts of Speech Charts (see Action Word Charts on pages 15 16). Word Rings Materials 6 one-inch (2.5 cm) metal book binding rings for each student 6 sheets of cardstock for each student hole-punch scissors Directions for the Teacher 1. Copy pages onto cardstock for each student. Note to Teacher: If desired, copy each set of words onto a different color of cardstock. This will help visual learners easily retrieve words from each of the different sets. 2. Cut the cards apart and laminate for durability. 3. Make a hole in each card using a hole-punch. 4. Separate the cards so that you are only working with one set. One set has been provided for each of the following: verbs, pronouns, prepositions, and other words. 5. To create a Word Ring, place a ring through the card set. 6. Additional cards may be created and added to the corresponding Word Ring. #3540 Classroom Authoring Guided Writing 12 Teacher Created Resources, Inc.

4 Kindergarten Word List This word list was developed from common word lists, including Dr. Fry s, the Dolch List, and other lists from basal texts and Internet resources. all am and are as at ate be but came can come eat from go he hear her him his I in is look me my new no now of on our out please ran read ride run said saw say see she sing so soon that the their them there they this to too under us walk was we went were will yes you your Teacher Created Resources, Inc. 13 #3540 Classroom Authoring Guided Writing

5 Sensory Vocabulary Chart Help your students practice developing sensory vocabulary using the blank chart below, or create your own on an overhead transparency and model examples for the students to see. Select a topic and guide the class to collect words for each column. (See the example on page 11.) Motion words refer to the sensation of movement. Not all categories will have entries in the columns. See Hear Touch Taste Smell Motion #3540 Classroom Authoring Guided Writing 14 Teacher Created Resources, Inc.
