Are you looking for phonics centers (and fine motor activities) to consolidate high frequency words with tricky spellings? These synthetic phonics activity mats will help your students to use orthographic mapping to unpack heart words - these are words with tricky or irregular spellings.
Build fine motor skills through playdough, as students roll the playdough to create each letter. These fine motor Kindergarten activities use playdough and high frequency words to build fine motor development in the Kindergarten classroom.
Use over and over again by placing these mats in write and wipe mats.
High-frequency words with tricky spellings (heart words) are included:
Heart Words are words with a tricky part which we have to learn by heart. These ‘tricky parts’ are either irregular/rare spellings, OR spelling patterns that have not yet been taught.
5 high-frequency decodable flash words are also included:
Flash words are high-frequency words with regular spellings. These words can be easily sounded out (decoded) but we want students to know these words ‘in a flash’.
By using the alphabetic code to identify the different graphemes, students will be able to understand how to spell all words on the high-frequency words list of any phonics or spelling program.
