Holy Smokes, my pal Robert is smarter than me :>  I didn't remember ever 
seeing this on LM_NET and so didn't check the Archives.  But Robert 
knew!   So here's the previous Word Wall hit (lightning speed!)

 > Here is a listing of the words collected from everyone sorted by
 > letter, but not alphabetical.  I have tried to include all the ideas that
 > were sent to me without judgment. I apologize in advance if I missed a
 > word or two. You will note that there are a few words/terms that may be
 > specific to a certain library.
 > Some of the words may not be suitable for my school's K-5 library, but
 > they may be helpful to others working at MS and HS levels. The list
 > includes words for computer labs and media centers. I am relatively new to
 > LMS-land (a former HS teacher) and I had very little experience with
 > word walls!
 > I am also posting a second part to this HIT with word wall
 > implementation suggestions. Thanks to all who responded.  Just when I
 > thought I had
 > every possible word, someone would email me with another great word to

 > WEBSITE: <>
 > 1b. the "word wall" is really at one end of a long white board.
 > Students write the words on index cards--4X6 work best--brightly colored.
 > Students write words they need to know and the definition and add it to the
 > wall. I really only do this with fifth graders(or fourth), by then,
 > they have a really good grasp of the library vocabulary, etc. Below are
 > some web sites that may help you--of course they are developed for
 > classrooms and have to adjust for the
 > library lesson times.
 > 2. As I understand the word wall, you would only add these after you
 > used them in class. These are the start of what I expect students to know
 > in 5th grade when they are ready to leave. For kindergarten, I'd do
 > words like front, back, cover, spine, call number, folk tale, fairy tale,
 > etc. This should give you some ideas.
 > 3. I have mine divided in areas of the library depending on the
 > activities that happen in that space.
 > 4. Our district, in their push for literacy, would like a word wall in
 > classrooms throughout the district K-12. It stands to reason that the
 > media center would have one too. Thanks!
 > 5. I wish I had time to think of more. You may try looking at
 > for some more ideas.
