We understand that this is a challenging time for many at home and we are working to provide you with a variety of ideas and activities to keep learning fun. We thank you for your patience. Practicing high frequency words is a practical way to help your child with reading and writing. The red words are words that your child should be able to read immediately and have transitioned to reading them in text and applying them to writing. Check out this video to help introduce new words and practice previously taught word! Ms. Knapp has created some tutorial videos to help students. Additional resources are also available on her website to supplement those posted on your child’s teacher’s website.
Some other ideas to practice red words include:
-Making the letters out of playdough. Have children spell and say it 3 times touching each letter and sweeping their finger to underline the word when they say the word.
-Flour/Sugar/Pudding/Jello on a baking sheet. Write the letters of the word using their dominant hand pointer finger to make the word, saying each letter as they go and saying the word as they underline it. Do this 3x for each word.
-Rainbow trace the word. Write a word and trace in 3 different colors.
-Sky Write the words. Pointer finger extended and unbent elbow, write the word in they sky, saying each letter as they write and underlining the word when it ends.
