Treasure Chests

Jot down words that individual children continue to have trouble unlocking even after several encounters.

Distribute personal lists to students and have them write, syllabify and define each word on a recipe card.

Ask them to file their cards in ABC order in private "treasure chests" (small boxes).

Work individually with children on their word cards at regular intervals.

When a word is thoroughly mastered, put a gold star on the card.

Students can embellish their own cards with dictionary-type illustrations as decoding aids and, perhaps, decorate their boxes to resemble chests.
