Third graders need fast, fluent, and automatic recognition of the most frequently used words.  High frequency words are reviewed and gradually added to the class word wall.  Each month, 12-14 new words are added to the word wall.  Students spend the month reviewing the words through activities and assignments.  Once a word is on the word wall, students are accountable for that word in all written work.
