Ideas for Using Thematic Unit Word Cards
Submitted by Admin (06-12-2012)
OUR THEME WORD CARDS ARE IDEAL FOR.....
- Themed word booklets for children's reference.
I LOVE THIS IDEA! (also ideal for sight words)
It's simple - when printing out each set of words. Set your printer to any of the following settings 2 in 1 , 4 in 1, 9 in 1, or even 16 in 1 if you would like mini mini booklets. Here are some pictures to help...
Staple books together at the top .Different sized books are ideal for different uses....**Hang the larger books on hooks along a wall for ease of reference access.
**The medium size books are ideal for group activities
**The small size mini books are ideal as individual children's reference books / take home books.
Printer set to Page Layout 2 in 1
Printer set to Page Layout 4 in 1
- Wall displays / themed bulletin boards.
Make sets of word cards.
I copy these onto white card or paper, sometimes then onto a coloured card background, cut them out, then laminate for long term use.
Ideal for kindergarten, preschool and primary classroom activities.
- Promote topic/theme discussions and brainstorming.
- Most card templates have extra blank spaces to include your own words.
General spelling, cloze, phonics and word card activities (see '101 Ways to use Word Cards' - a fantastic word study activity resource.)
Make puzzles of each card by cutting through using different shaped cuts.
- The children would refer to the appropriate theme booklet, box or pocket during general writing sessions to double check their spelling.
- HOW TO STORE YOUR WORD CARDS...
Each theme set has a picture code related to that theme so that the words do not get mixed up and are easily sorted.
I keep all my theme card sets in a labelled hanging pocket system, I have also seen them in cut down milk cartons, tins, and those small plastic crates available from cheap shops etc. Each theme set has a label which can be used for identification.
