This is my take on vocab pockets. I put a variety of high level adjectives for common words such as happy or sad into jewellery bags and hung them onto hooks to encourage children to use them to expand their vocabulary. Jeweller bags were £2 from eBay, bargain!!!
I've done this bulletin board every year, and the kids (and adults) love it! I send out a letter to the parents asking for random items, and this is what I got this year:) The item to search for changes every day.
Boggle- This is by far the most popular in my room. I got this amazing activity from Create-Teach-Share and my kids go bananas for it. I just change the letters weekly to reflect our spelling pattern focus and they go on a word making frenzy. LOVE it!
A teaching blog with ideas on "A to Z" sounds including word families. As students make charts on the smart board for words with certain sounds or word families, this teacher creates a poster for their bulletin board.
