Throughout my teaching career I have worked with children who struggle to learn these pesky words that generally cannot be sounded out- so must be learned by heart.
That presents a problem as kids these days HATE rote learning and will do all they can to avoid it.
When I wrote this product I was determined to come up with interesting ways to get kids excited about these essential words.
Without being able to read and write these words, kids have NO chance of reaching full literacy.
I have made this product FREE so just join TEACHERS PAY TEACHERS, (https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/,) find my store-Victoria Carlton Programs and follow me. The free TRICKY WORDS package is my featured product and as mentioned, it is FREE!
Don’t forget to follow for more great freebies coming over the next few months.
This very full – 9 part learning package is designed to help children learn to read and spell the 72 TRICKY words taught in the first two years of school. It follows the same sequence as that used by the JOLLY PHONICS program.
However, the learning activities would suit the needs of any young literacy learners.
The suggested learning activities can also be used to help older children to close the gap and achieve better literacy outcomes.
WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THIS PACKAGE AND HOW CAN IT BE USED?
1. Suggestions for multi-sensory teaching of the TRICKY WORDS.
2. Strips of TRICKY WORDS to read and trace.
These can be stapled into paper chains to decorate literacy centers and classrooms.
The TRICKY WORDS can also be glued into children’s writing books for reference and practice.

These can be copied, cut up and used as flashcards. Children can read these words and also be directed to copy them for spelling practice. The TRICKY words are underlined.
