Approximatley half of them already have the hook part of the velcro on the back so they are ready to use on felt. If you prefer, I can remove the velcro....just let me know. Metal container isn't included---unless you would like to pay for me to ship it! :) , I will pack it as is---- categorized and stored in snack sized ziplocks. Most families have 5 words, a few (2-3) have only 4, due to classroom damage or loss. I haven't actually counted but there are close to 190 word cards. Perhaps learn 2 sets per week?
