When I taught 3rd and 4th grade, I had a "Doodle Words" table. I would tape a big sheet of paper to a back table. Then I would "label" the table. For example, I would label the table "Adjectives" and my students would write/draw adjectives all over the paper. I also had a "Verb" table, a "Words That End With -ING" table, and more. I would change the paper every one to two weeks. Well, I decided to bring back the "Doodle Words" table. As my first and second graders begin to, and continue to, explore words and sounds within the words, I thought it appropriate to let them "play" with words at the "Doodle Words" table.
