I have used these two different ways. 1. I have students cut out the pieces with the word and definition attached. We then fold them and glue one side down. We write the word on top so that they can see the word, try to remember the definition, and then flip it open to see the actual definition. 2. I have students cut out the definition and put a post it note on top of it (like pictures).
It helps the kids study their vocabulary. I have found many students turning back to the pages as we study, review, and discuss new standards. It’s awesome!

I plan to use the definitions only and post it notes to go over each definition with the word written (or maybe printed—if I can figure out how to print on post it notes) on it. This allows students to continually quiz themselves in their journals.
