You will see printables for you to use to track your students progress as they learn their first 25 high frequency words.
They are hard to teach because they lack relationships with other words, sound patterns, and are usually undecodable. It is critical that beginning readers know how to write these words, in the correct order, in less than three seconds, with the correct letter formation. If students are able to write these words, research shows they will be able to read them whenever they are presented. Fluency and consistency is important for these friendly words. Hopefully this brings more fun and practice to your student’s high frequency word bank. Use the tally charts to mark when students show they have mastered spelling the word. Once a student has mastered a word, challenge them to more… then move to the next list of 25 words!
So get practicing!
