Word Wall – Preschool

Recently I created a word wall in my kids playroom. Word wall helps kids learn the Names of letters – letter recognition, ABC Order and Letter Sound.

What we used:

  • Alphabet borders
  • Alphabet flash cards
  • Painters tape
  • Sticky Velcro dots

How to:

  • Stick the alphabet borders on the wall at the eye level of kids.
  • Stick the velcro dots on the alphabet border under each letter.
  • Stick the other side of the velcro dots on the flash cards.
  • Let the kids match the flash cards to the corresponding letters. We will be adding more words to our word wall.
  • You can also write the new words on cardstock or construction paper and use double sided tape to stick it. 

    How to use word wall:

    • As kids use the word wall, they are building their vocabulary. Its a great way to learn sight words.
    • Every time a new word is introduced, find opportunities to use it throughout the day. 
    • Encourage kids to use the new word in a sentence.
    • Let the kids say the new word and put it under the corresponding letter that it starts with. Eg – Egg under the letter E.
    • I found that, if you add your kids name to the word wall, it makes it more fun & interesting for them everytime they see it.
