Great Ideas to Help Your Child Learn High Frequency Words
Flash Cards: Use index cards or small squares of paper to write one word on each card. Choose 5 words for your child to learn. When they know the words, choose 5 more. Continue until your child recognizes all high frequency words.
Going on a Word Hunt: Hide the flash cards in a room and have your child to go on a Word Hunt to find the cards. When they find a card, have them to tell you the word.
Word Memory: Make two sets of flash cards. Choose 5 - 8 words to include in the game. Turn the card words over. Take turns turning over two cards at a time. If the words on the cards match, have your child to tell you the word and they get to keep the cards. If the words do not match, turn the cards over.
Magnetic Words: Have your child to make high frequency words with magnetic letters.
Hang Man: Play Hang Man using high frequency words.
