Journeys- Reading

These are words students should be able to read easily.  We call them heart words.  If your child has difficulty remembering any of them, here are some fun ways to practice them:

  • Write them on note cards and play a game- memory and go fish are popular ones (you’ll need 2 sets of the cards).
  • Another fun game is to play tic tac toe: write the words in the squares and to place an x or 0 on the space you read the word first.
  • Make silly sentences using the words and pictures.
  • Go on a word hunt and look for the words in favorite picture books or other text.
  • Post one of the words near the front door and the child must read the word to “unlock” the door.
