Description

Teaching high-frequency words will be a breeze with this versatile 6-in-1 set of sandcastle-themed games and activities. Give your kindergarten, first, and second-grade students the practice they need to master these 354 high-frequency words with this easy-to-individualize resource. Watch them grow as they learn to read these words, recognize them by “sight”, and develop fluency.

Take a closer look at this resource by clicking on the green VIEW PREVIEW button above.

All 220 pre-primer, primer, first, second, and third-grade words from a popular list along with the remaining 134 words from the 300 most commonly used words are included. There are a total of 354 high-frequency word cards (9 per page). Choose words to meet the instructional needs of your students.

Although these are considered high-frequency words that you want your students to learn to recognize by sight, many of them are phonetically regular. They are grouped on each page by the high-frequency level assigned by the authors of each list. I have also created a free document that groups the words by phonetic patterns. Use this document to help you select words that are phonetically regular and decodable for your students.

Try these word cards:

  • with a Read, Build, and Write mat or
  • to Roll-a-Sandcastle.
