High Frequency Word Cards
Learning high frequency words can be very difficult for students with dyslexia or who are struggling readers. As a first grade reading teacher, it is especially frustrating to watch a student work day after day on the same high frequency words with little or no success. Research has shown that many students who do have these difficulties think and remember visually with pictures. I incorporated pictures into those words to give my students an image to remember with the word. My students love these cards!
