The word building cards are smaller versions of the word wall cards but without the definitions. These can be used for instruction and word work activities.
The word-of-the-day activity includes a full color graphic organizer and coordinating student worksheet. Student can be given a word to break apart and analyze to discover its meaning. A list of suggested words is also included.
