Please also note that, since this set contains 5000 cards, there is the possibility that you find yourself missing a few cards----either due to a collating and packaging error on our part or from the sorting and shuffling of cards as the teacher assembles the set. Through the year, you may loose cards as well. Therefore, we include many blank cards with which you can use a sharpie to make new cards.
The cards are pastel colors of blue, pink, yellow, green, lavender and grey. Each card is coded with a letter and a numeral.
We recommend housing your Word Study cards in a 60 drawer storage box. A link to one sold by Ace Hardware is below:
