How to use the word cards:
I add these cards to a pocket chart that I keep on the wall of my Writing Center area, and I change them out during each theme. The kids can take the word cards out of the pocket chart and take them to the table if they want to write the words. We also use these to practice clapping or stomping the syllables in the words during our large group time
You can also make little picture dictionaries with the word cards. Each card has a punch hole at the top left corner. Punch the holes, and bind them together with a metal binder ring.
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.
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.
