Present words daily or, as a set, weekly. Start class with one of the words. Print a page, cut it in half, and post the word and its treatment. (You may wish to enlarge the page for greater visibility.) Post words in the same spot each day, perhaps within a frame, to accustom students to this activity. As you complete each word, store it alphabetically in a file box or accordion file!
