Use “Heart Word” Playdough and Fingerspelling Mats for word work practice and to reinforce handwriting motions and letter recognition. (We call our sight words “heart words” because we learn the words “by heart.”) These 16 pink “heart words” are the ones kindergartners use most in our comprehensive writing program.

Children are motivated to:

** observe closely

** review letter names

** review accurate handwriting motions

** practice fingerspelling and self-correcting

** read sight words and sight word sentences

** practice sight word games in pairs


** 16 “heart word” mats (in black and white or color) for you to laminate:

I, cat, a love, dog, you, see, Mom, the, Dad, we, me, my, can, like, house

(Nellie Edge pink “heart words” is the first of four color-coded sets of high-frequency sight words. Bundle and save!)
