How to use the word cards:
There are many ways you could use these cards. I use these cards in a pocket chart in my writing center. You can also use them on a word wall, or hook them together on a binder ring to make a picture dictionary. Offer it as an option for those children who are ready to copy words on their paper. Many children will be interested in trying it out.
You can also use the cards in Pre-K “Writer’s Workshop”. Place these cards on a table with some paper and markers.
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 might also want to put them in the pocket chart during the transportation theme unit, 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.
Use the blank set to write words in other languages or other writing styles (e.g. D’Nealian), or use them for modeled writing activities.
