Why would I use a word list?

When I’m creating, I often find myself searching for just right words. It might be the perfect word for a set of winter nouns or maybe an adverb when creating a literacy center.

On the spot, thinking of the just right word can be a challenge. Even when thinking of a simple list of words. Sometimes looking at an already compiled list can spark new thoughts.

Student use of word lists

These are great for inspiration for teachers while planning. However, they can also be a useful tool for children to use during writing.

Print word lists that are high interest for your children and add them to writing folders.

Or, provide a few lists at your writing center. You might choose to enlarge a current favorite and display as a poster.
