I made these personal word walls for my first and second graders so their high-frequency words would be easily accessible and visible during writing workshop and when they choose Work on Writing during Daily 5. Making these writing tools was easy, rquiring only a glue stick and a file folder.

Students keep their personal word walls in their book boxes and simply open the folder and set it up in front of them when needed. It is a simple thing that has helped with spelling and provides a bit of a privacy barrier for those who want it. 

The words in bold are our "no-excuse" words.  These words have to be spelled correctly, no excuses.  

I left these as a Word document so you can revise them to meet your needs.  Include your grade level's no-excuse words or important content words. One addition I like to make is to add the names of classmates.  Young students often write about their friends, so having the names in front of them is helpful.
