    Looking for science of reading based literacy centers that expose students to high frequency words and utilize the heart word method?  With these independent student activities, students will use their knowledge of heart words (irregularly spelled high frequency words) to create phoneme-grapheme word associations and practice phonemic awareness skills. This resource also includes editable templates to create a heart word center with any word.


    Research shows irregular high frequency words can be committed to memory after 1-4 exposures. For struggling readers, it can take up to 20 exposures. These centers will provide your students with the practice they need to be able to store heart words into their sight word memories. Use these activities for review at a center after you have explicitly and systematically introduced heart words to your students.  Check out my Heart Words Teaching Slides for more!
