The Student Parallage Phrases are formatted to be printed two sided and cut out for students to use. Pages should be printed front to back (page 1 and 2 together, 3 and 4 together...) and then each phrase should be cut out. Phrases 1-20 are on one side and then you can flip the deck and go from 21-40 on the back. Both adults and children in the beginning learning stage benefit from only seeing one phrase at a time. It is also much easier to use magic notes when the phrases are cut out.
The Plain Parallage Phrases have no instructions or teaching tips on them. They are not meant to be cut out.
I no longer find it necessary to continue using the Parallage Phrases past #40. I will leave them here for teachers that would like to continue using them. I have had success transitioning my students into the Vespers Brief Stichera (verses only) after phrases 1-40. I prefer to have them begin learning real music (with text!) instead of continuing with the later phrases as my students found they had a hard time chanting on text (and not on parallage). I also think it is really important to teach the 8 modes as authentically as possible and repertoire does a much better job than phrases 41-75.

Now when you finish phrase 20 you can flip the deck over and continue with phrase 21-40. This assumes that after you chant each phrase you place the phrase under the whole deck so that it stays in the same order. April 14, 2016: Edit phrases 35-40 so that they begin on pa and mimic Mode 1. Move phrases 41-75 to bottom of the page and encourage using Vespers Brief Stichera (verses only) instead).
