Word Wall or No Word Wall

Next year I am teaching 2nd grade but it will be a gifted cluster class.  Not all the kids will be gifted but they will be high to middle ability.  Last year I used a regular 2nd grade word wall.  They got 5 words a week.  They wrote sentences in a notebook on Tuesdays.  I'm not sure if I should keep my Word Wall.  I'm not sure if they words will be too easy for them or if I should keep it has a reference.  Another thought is turning it into a science and social studies word wall.  What do you think?

  1. yes! I would do more of a content area word wall or something with a wow word wall or fancy words. Even in my average second grade class, most of our "second grade words" are too easy for most of them!
