Word Window

Found in: reading, spelling, vocabulary

Where do you post your cumulative vocabulary word list in a classroom with minimal extra wall, white board, or bulletin board space? My solution is akin to Word Wall: it is Word Window. I use darkly colored whiteboard marker and write the words directly on the window for all to see. I add words throughout the year, and at the end, I can wipe the windows clean with a simple whiteboard eraser. The view out is never obstructed or dimmed. The truly sneaky thing about it is that students can't look out the window to daydream without seeing the words first. Who knows, maybe they'll daydream using the vocabulary words.
