Mrs. Blanchette’s, the Nayatt Reading Specialist’s Information for Kindergarten:

Letter for K Families

Grade 1:

High Frequency Words are the most commonly used words in our language.  These words are very important for children to learn how to read and to spell.  Many HFW are regularly spelled and decodable.  Some HFW, however, are more tricky and contain a letter or letter combination that do not follow common letter-sound correspondence.  We call these words Red Words (Heart Words).  Some Red Words are permanently irregular, but others are temporarily irregular, meaning students haven’t learned the letter-sound correspondence in that word just yet.  Check out the great link on “Heart Word Magic” below for more detailed information about teaching Heart Words.
