Word Lists and Word Walls
Word Wall 2013 (word doc) on 11 pages.
These are laminated and hung. Extra words can be written on with permanent marker. Can be edited to add / subtract words of relevance to your own class.
I love how this looks on the lattice in the Grade 1 room.
Technically not a word wall in the strictest sense, but 5/6 need a lot of words and the pockets make it easy for kids to grab and go.
Above is the Prep Word Wall right at the beginning of the year. They've used the cupboard doors at the front under the white/chalk/smart board so they'll blu tak words on as they do them week by week.
We also put a larger version out on the landing where small groups of kids often write. Stands out against the red wall!

The parents walk by this word wall below every day on their way to the Prep room so it seemed a good idea to combine a word wall with a bit of parent information.

Word Jars - similar to the above. In Grade 2 (2015) we used these with slips of card to write and find words for our writing.
