I also put my word wall words on velcro, so that students can take the word from the wall and use it at their seat. Also, our first grade team does something similar to Book Muncher...
Each week we have 5 new words and each day of the week is a diff. activity:
Monday- we introduce the words and put them in ABC order

Tuesday- Rhyme Time- I say "the word wall word I am thinking of rhymes with...."

Wednesday- Secret Sentence- I make up a sentence for each word (I try to make a story) and they have to fill the appropriate word in the blank

Thursday- Hot Seat- I pick a student to sit in the hot seat in front of the other children. The students are in charge of giving 3 clues for the chosen word wall word. This is good recall for the children, but I have also let the hot seat student have the words in front of them to help decide what the word is

Friday- Mystery Word- this is like hot seat but I am giving the clues to the class

We always clap and chant as a review before we start these activities...
