    Hey everyone! Are we all ready to head back to work? I start up on Monday. Yikes! Anyway, I'm a reading specialist in a 5/6th building. I'm looking for good resources to share with my staff on Word Walls. I can find many activities and ideas for the younger grades, but am sure that 5/6th graders would not appreciate them. Tough crowd at this age! Thanks in advance!

    I saw a cool idea at a workshop where a teacher had the students act out certain words and took their pictures. For example, one pair of students had the word lathargic. The students would pose in the meaning of the word and she would put the pictures up with the words. It was really cool and the kids got really into it.
