    Are these effective for 5th grade?

    Also, should I have my Math and Science WW's in separate places in the room or just right next to each other under there own category?

    I'm trying WW this year, but with a less-traditional twist. I want to do something with prefixes and suffixes and Greek/Latin roots. I have also seen WW with content vocabulary and parts of speech (nifty nouns, vivacious verbs, awesome adjectives, etc.) I don't see why you couldn't put the math and science words near each other. If you want the kids to quickly distinquish them you could write them on differnt colored backgrounds.

    You can use the same WW but just use different colors for each of the content words you are putting up there and let them know. So Math words are in blue and Science in green, etc.

    I do word walls in high school. This is a strategy that can be applicable to any age group.

    I have a word wall for writing. I posted occasion/position words, conclusion words, transition words, and summary words. They're in different colors for each topic, and I always have kids looking up there to help them start out their writing. It's incredibly helpful! I can get you the list of words I use on my wall if you're interested!
