Trace, write, say, find, use, and understand!
These simple steps help students power up with high frequency words!
It is essential that readers and writers develop automaticity when it comes to high frequency words because it will make them faster and more fluent readers.
Many of the high frequency words cannot be sounded out, nor do they follow commonly taught phonics rules. Consequently, if students pause too long to figure out these words then their understanding of what they have read suffers.
High frequency words need to be introduced in a meaningful way, not only in isolation. These words need to be practiced in context and in complete sentences.
Power Up with High Frequency Words, allows students to practice high frequency words in many ways. Students see the word, write and say the word, find the word, use the word in a meaningful sentence and then put it all together to understand the word.
There are 40 high frequency worksheets that can be used for whole class instruction, small groups, individual practice, literacy centers, or homework assignments.
The worksheets include the words:
about, all, are, because, by, came, come, could, do, down, each, for, from, have, how, know, little, look, make, of, one, out, said, saw, should, some, the, there, they, this, use, want, was, went, were, what, when, which, you, your.
Also included are superhero boy and girl high frequency words student progress sheets. Students can track their own progress and see which words they know and which words they need to study. Two blank progress sheets are also included so you can add your own words.
The end of the file contains mini posters of the superhero boy and girl. There are black and white copies that your students can color. There are also colored copies that can be printed out and used on bulletin boards or for other activities.
Power Up with High Frequency Words and soar!
