    Tips for Using …..

    *Never, never, never put your word cards away …immerse your learning area in words !  Store your classroom sets in labelled pouches or boxes (the small bio-zet type washing powder boxes work really well, OR  plastic pouches) ready for reference and use everyday!

    *Play with Words at every opportunity!

    *Grab a set of cards and plan one of the activities everyday – short whole class activities, structured literacy group activities or impromptu grab and go games…

    *1 larger set and 1 smaller set -Whenever you plan to print off a set of word cards – print off 2 sets – or ideally……

    *…..make use of different print sizes.  The larger 4 words to a page size is ideal for wall display—the 2 in 1 print sizes are great for hands-on games and labelled boxes/pockets.  9 in 1 is ideal for word lists, individual copies for cut and paste activities and take home word cards.  

    How to print in different sizes….

    *Never underestimate the power of the written WORD (CARD) ! *

Perfect size for the cards to slip into with the label pinned to the front). When doing a particular theme, I remove those cards for display, but the rest are always there for the kids to use,
