Make Your Word Walls Better with Mote
In the past, I have written about the importance of vocabulary instruction in all grades because the achievement gap is largely attributed to a vocabulary gap. Therefore, strategies like word walls are effective tools for providing students with important visual representations to encourage the use of vocabulary in the classroom, in assignments, etc.
Word walls can be created in a variety of different ways. For instance, teachers can generate a word wall for the entire class based on vocabulary terms within a unit, chapter, story, etc. Students could create their own individual word wall for an assignment or collaborate on a word wall for the entire class.
The following templates use Google Slides to provide an area for the term, picture to describe, and a 30-second Mote recording. Mote can be used as a tool to say and define the word. Additionally, users may want to consider using Mote to share examples of the term.
