What's that? A Wall?

Do you remember that old school dude that used to be on a wall?  His nose and his hands showing over the top of the wall?  

This wall is nothing like that.

This is Wordwall.  Wordwall is unlike any other wall around.

Wordwall is a website where you can create interactives - both printable and online versions!  Those interactives include a maze game reminiscent of Pac Man, Whack-a-mole, and the trusty quiz show, among others. You can create and print bingo boards, name wheels, sorts, quizzes, 14 different printables in the free version!  The free version of the online interactives gives you 18 different options!

What I like best is that you only have to do the data entry once.  By that I mean, you only have to enter the questions and answers, or vocabulary words and definitions one time.  Once you enter that, then you can decide which way to play!  And, if you're so inclined, they have a bunch of different examples you can play with, too!

This week, fourth grade had a tech tip review, and what did we use?  Wordwall!  The kids had three levels to work through, and each level had two ways to play.  After the kids were done playing, the teacher dashboard shows you who answered what, and how well they did.  It's such an engaging assessment, the kids don't even know they're being assessed.

The free version of Wordwall gives you the ability to create 5 different resources, that can be played online in 18 different ways, or printed in 14 different ways.  The standard version is $6 a month and you can create unlimited resources.  The pro version unlocks additional online interactives and printables.  (And as usual, annual plans are discounted over monthly payments!)  Did I mention that Wordwall is available in 26 different languages?  I was introduced to the platform by one of our Hebrew teachers!

If you're looking for an easy way to spice up some basics, pop on over to and see what you can create!
