For each month, there are three things included:

❶ A SET OF 12 COLORFUL DISPLAY CARDS: You’ll print these and put them around the classroom. I have cute clothespins stuck to the wall with blue sticky tack, but you could do whatever works for you. You can even train students to change the cards for you (smart!). I just clip new cards in each week (I keep each set of 12 cards up for about a week and have other literacy skill-based sets for other weeks- available individually or bundled in my store). 

❷ RECORDING SHEETS: You’ll find several differentiated options… check them out and choose whatever is best for your kids. The preview offers a closer look. 
* Simple & Sweet (Perfect if you don’t want to make new copies each week- this one consistent sheet could be used ALL year long!)
* Simple WITH Picture Clues (Nice if you want kids to be able to easily “re-read” the finished product and recall what each word says)
* Circle the Word (Awesome for kids who aren’t ready to write the whole word on their own- they look @ the display cards & circle the matches)

❸ ANSWER KEYS: These are for you (just in case) and/or for the kids. They might think it’s fun to check their own work after they finish finding and recording the words. 

THE ROUTINE: Kids put their recording sheet on a clipboard (fun!) and walk around finding the words and recording their answers. Words can be found in ANY order, but they’re numbered to keep things organized and let them see what else they’re looking for. Cards are also clearly labeled and color-coded for you so you never have to wonder which card belongs to which set. 

Happy writing! ✍
