    I just went to my new school to get the keys to my new classroom. The VP told me we are doing Grammar Walls this year instead of Word Walls. I understand the difference, but I wonder what I should put on a Grammar Wall.

    In 2nd grade we used to put the words up on our word wall - but not in alphabetical order, we used headings like Nouns, Verbs, Adjectives, Adverbs, etc. Is that a Grammar Wall?
    (The best was the ??? category for when we hadn't yet learned that part of speech.)

    I think so. I was going to use a pocket chart, half for word wall, and the other half for grammar, like verb, noun, etc. I am thinking that's a grammar wall. I wonder what else would make it more functional though.
