How to Have a Quick Word Wall Display

How can you quickly put up a word wall in the shortest time possible? Without tape or clips? Use a pocket chart. I think it’s the best option because all you have to do is to place the cards into the pockets. The transparent trimming holds the card in place while allowing 100% of the card to be seen. When you’re ready to teach something new, just swap out the cards. I love to find awesome classroom decor ideas.

If you want to use a pocket chart for your word walls, I’m recommending the Lauri Midsize one from Amazon but you can get tons of other sizes or colors – just as long as it is strong.  I actually tried to make my own a long time ago; it was cute but it did not last beyond the school year! Anything that saves you time as a teacher is a worthwhile investment. Click here to see it on Amazon (the cards in it are found here).
