When students write a story, I pass out the word bank cards that I have run on cardstock.  Students can write with more detail if they have the vocabulary words they need.  After the word banks are introduced, they are usually left in a location where they can continue to be used for the rest of the year.

Most of the word banks with pictures are double-sided.  These are made with kindergarteners in mind.  They continue to be used in first grade.

The word banks with words are used in first grade.  The students locate words they need by trying to stretch out the word, then looking for a word on the card that is the one with the sounds they heard.
