Last Friday when I was in Detroit we made word wallets similar to the one below:
1st Place the paper lengthwise and fold up the bottom to an inch from the top.
2nd Fold in half.
3rd Open and glue both sides. (Trim top corners if you desire.)
4th Let the children decorate the outside.
5th Cut 4 ½ ” x 2 ¼ ” green rectangles and write high frequency words on them.
When children learn a word they get to “save” it in their wallets.
You could also use the wallets to “save” letters, numerals, math facts, vocabulary words, colors, shapes, etc.
