First Grade Fundations® Level 1 Aligned If your students struggle with those pesky "trick words" and spelling, this multi-sensory Trick Word Journal will help. By using six steps your students can strengthen their visual memory. Included are all 93 Trick Words with Tracking Sheets to keep track of Student Progress. This is the most powerful method I have ever used with struggling readers. Drawing on the words directly cements the pictures in the brain for my dyslexic students and they love doing it!
Some people ask about tapping trick words. My practice is if it is "tappable" like the word /and/ I have them tap it out. If it is not "tappable" like the word /of/ we skip tapping. For example, today I had a student working on "could" he got the letters with the pictures /o//u/l/ but he forgot the /c/ and the /d/. I had to remind him that you must use your visualization and your hearing too. That is why I have tapping in this product. If this confuses your students then by all means leave it out and just use the picture alone.
Please contact me with questions and comments in the Q and A section. I have included an explanation of the method in the product but I am happy to answer your questions or even revise the product if you need it.
I use this method with dyslexic students with great success. Words Included:
