This idea for “saving” high frequency words came from a precious teacher in Louisiana. Ask children to bring a wallet from home.  Write high frequency words (aka “dollar words”) on green paper cut 4” x 2”.  When children learn a new word they get to “save” it in their wallets.
Younger children could save letters or numerals in their wallets.
Older children could save vocabulary words.
 *If children finish their work early they can play games like “memory” or “go fishing” with their dollars with friends.

*Children can also make simple wallets from construction paper.  Fold up a sheet of construction paper to 1 ½” from the top.  Glue the sides and then fold in half.
