Looking for a science of reading based literacy center that exposes students to high frequency words and utilizes the heart word method? With this independent student activity, students will use their knowledge of heart words to create phoneme-grapheme word associations. This process utilizes the oral language processing part of a student’s brain to help them permanently store high frequency words into their sight word memory. Use this activity as a review after you have explicitly and systematically introduced heart words to your students. Check out my Heart Words Teaching Slides for more!
Using these heart word mapping task cards, students will practice their high frequency words through phoneme grapheme mapping. Students will read a sentence to hear the high frequency word used in context, map the word by placing counters/cubes in the sound boxes, graph the word by spelling the word with graphemes (letters) and write the word three times.
