This is the third set of Word Cards that I have made for the Journeys First Grade reading series. This includes the 6 Oral vocabulary words, the High Frequency Words, and the Spelling Words with 2 bonus/challenge spelling words that I have chosen from the selection vocabulary words.
I copy these on cardstock and laminate for use in my classroom throughout the week. I use the vocabulary words in a chart on my wall and for vocabulary activities throughout the week. I use the High Frequency Words by putting magnets on them and allowing the students to use them during stations, putting them in alphabetical order, and then after the week- they are moved over to our word wall which is on a magnetic white board. I use the spelling words in a chart as well, but the students are able to use these during stations as well.
These word cards are a great addition to my classroom because they are attractive and fun. My students enjoy seeing what will be put up each week, and they enjoy talking about the different backgrounds I have used and why they are important to our stories. They are also great for Write the Room activities. I definitely enjoy using them with my First Graders, and I hope you will enjoy them, too!
