Up first is VOCABULARY! Truly one of favorite parts of the close reads! Below is a “pretend” version of what my vocabulary wall will look like last year. Not sure about you, but I need a visual 🙂 A sweet friend is going to make me some vinyl headers for my classroom. Honestly, I don’t I even know what those machines are called…the only vinyl I can do is the numbers you can buy at Lowes for your mailbox…even that will be a stretch for me! HA! Anyway, last year you saw many pictures of my vocabulary charts! Well, I loved it, but when I would make a mistake on my poster I would have to start completely over and it got a little annoying! So, now the words will be on the dry-ERASE board so I can easily correct it! I will also have my large picture cards displayed with the definition! You’ll notice that this is directly next to my word wall- PERFECT!
