load – fulcrum
There are so many things that you can do with these vocabulary cards. You can read and learn the definitions together. You can sort them into related categories. You can have your kids write them into their own notebook with the definition and a picture to help them remember. You can write the definitions on cards and play a matching game. You can do a word of the day. They can be displayed on the wall to learn, and so on.
The cards do not have the definitions on the back, but come with a paper that tells the definition of all of the words. I would say that was my one “complaint” about these. I ended up writing the definitions out on the back of each of our cards. Separate cards can be purchased that have the definitions, though.
We liked to use them on our Calendar Board doing a word of the day. I pulled a math and science word each day to focus on and we would learn the definition and discuss it. We also liked sorting some of them by category. Sometimes we just got them all out and went through looking at and talking about the pictures. My kids love the bright pictures. They really enjoy these cards. I am equally happy with them and am so glad to have them as a fun supplement to add into our school day.
They have so many other amazing vocabulary sets on their site that you should check out as well: Greek/Latin roots, Spanish vocabulary, Alphabet cards, Antonyms, Homophones, Action verbs and more.
