AUTHENTIC multisensory teaching and learning is how the brain learns best!
We call high-frequency words “heart words” because children learn them to read and write them “by heart.” This INSTANTLY allows them to write heart-connecting sentences such as “I love you.”
Teachers love this engaging approach to “heart word” work because it dramatically accelerates reading and writing proficiency. (Our action research shows kindergartners use these 62 words over 65% of the time in their writing!) Parents and children love pink, purple, yellow, and green “heart words” because it differentiates learning and gives students individual crystal-clear learning targets! Children delight in practicing at home and at school!
