Fancy Nancy Word Wall
Each week we get three or four new "Fancy Nancy" words. I put up to seven under the fancy word board and then move them over to the regular word wall as we get more words. We go over the words frequently and I encourage the students to use them in their journal writing. Some of the words come from books we have read but I love the Word a Day book and use it a lot. I use fancy scrapbook paper so the students can tell the difference between the fancy words and the Harcourt sight words.
