Heart Words are exactly what you want if you're looking for effective high frequency word instruction. Teaching Heart Words will transform your sight word instruction and your students will thank you for it. 

The Heart Word Method uses orthographic mapping to help students remember the parts of irregular words that do not follow rules. Phonetically regular parts of the word are decoded as normal, but the tricky parts of the word are explicitly taught. This is the part they will learn 'by heart'.

<3 These Foldables!

My students usually complete word cards for heart words, but I was looking for something additional for one of my students who needed extra practice. I'm so happy I found these foldables! My student feels successful completing each page and is especially thrilled to be reading when reading the sentence page. I appreciate the opportunities for reinforcing the reading, writing, and spelling of each heart word in an engaging format. The books also allow for parents to support review of the words. Thank you for this wonderful product!

I use these with my students who are struggling with their sight words. When they read the sentences on their own, I can see the joy on their faces. This is a great independent activity they like sharing with their parents.
