M and M Word Wall

Multiple Meaning Word Wall

shed

Purpose of the M and M word wall is to help students develop awareness that many words in the English language have more than one meaning. Words gain meaning by their sound and their context, location, and/or function in a sentence. This is of particular importance to ELL students. Start with the nouns column and place words in all columns that apply. Generate sentences to show the different meanings. Challenge your students to find words that fit in multiple categories.

For younger grades put the words on colored cut outs that look like candy M and M’s.
