This set of Body Parts Picture-Word Cards includes arm, elbow, wrist, hand, thumb, finger, fingernails, head, ear, eye, hair, lips, teeth, tongue, nose, legs, knee, ankle, foot, toes, shoulders, stomach, neck. Many young children don’t know words like wrist, ankle, elbow, etc. so these cards can teach kids new vocabulary.
These could be used during an All About Me theme. This set has 23 word cards.

How to use the word cards:
There are a few ways you can use these picture-word cards and display them.
Have fun by using these word cards while playing games, such as Simon Says (“Simon says touch your elbow”, etc.). Or pretend your fingers are an ant by “walking” your fingers to different parts of the body (“An ant crawled up your ankle”).
You can make picture dictionaries by punching a hole in the top left corner (punch hole dot provided). Hook them together with a metal binder ring.
You can place the cards in a pocket chart. Kids can take the words out of the pocket chart to take to the table if they want to copy the word on their paper. I keep a pocket chart on the wall of my Writing Center and change out the word cards for each theme.
You might also want to put them in the pocket chart during the theme, then later hook them on a picture dictionary ring to add to a collection of thematic words through the year.
You can use these cards to practice clapping or stomping the syllables in the words.
The blank set of cards has the picture without the word. These can be used for other languages or other writing styles, such as D’nealian.
