Word Wall Instructions Return to Word Wall Form

This form can be used to create printable word walls. The words for your wall may be printed in fonts up to almost two inches tall. The words and the borders around them may be printed in different colors. Words may be printed in one, two or three columns per page, and pages may be printed in either a portrait or landscape orientation.

Note that only a few word lists are available here. An abcteach membership allows you to create any number of custom word lists that can be saved and edited online.

To preview or print a word wall:

  1. Pick a word list.
  2. Pick a font family and a font size.
  3. Pick a font.
  4. Click on the "Preview/Print Word Wall" button.

To preview or print your word wall, you must have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your computer.

For some word walls, you may wish to highlight a particular sequence of letters in your words. For instance, for the Word List:


You may want the letters "art" to be printed in a different color. To achieve this, do the following:

  1. Type the letters "art" into the "Text to Highlight" field (do not type the quote marks)
  2. Choose a Highlight Color that is different than the Word Color.
  3. Click on the "Preview/Print Word Wall" button.

You can highlight more than one letter sequence by typing them into the "Text to Highlight" field separated by a comma. For instance, typing the following in the "Text to Highlight" field:

art, de

and clicking "Preview/Print Word Wall" will cause the letter sequences "de" and "art" to be printed in the Highlight Color everywhere they occur in your word wall.

This word wall form can also be used to make sentence strips, such as:

The c at is very f at .
