    it would be great if the backgrounds could match the word to help EAL students de-code

      Hi Jen, I agree this would be a great way for visual learners to pick up the words also. As this resource is an editable word wall, it isn't possible to have the words match the pictures. If this is something you would like, please submit a Resource Request by clicking the link below: https://www.teachstarter.com/request-a-resource/ If there is anything else I can assist you with, please don't hesitate to contact me.

    I edited the list of words as my class doesn't need them. Perfect for my Grade 5/6 class and colourful on the wall.
