Heart Words & High Frequency Words Mapping Worksheets and Slides (SOR)
These high-frequency word worksheets and slides teach students sight words using the heart word method! These worksheets and slides are aligned to the Science of Reading and sort all the following high-frequency words into a scope and sequence by phonics skills.
The high-frequency words included in this unit are:
- Dolch Pre-K
- Dolch K
- Dolch 1st Grade
- Dolch 2nd Grade
- Fry 1-100
Each word is listed somewhere on this scope and sequence in one of two categories: Decodable (meaning once students learn that phonics pattern, they should be able to decode the word) or Heart Words (there is a part of the word that is irregularly spelled and doesn’t fall into the phonics pattern taught. When teaching students heart words, you will want to teach them that some sounds will still be decodable and the “heart part” is what they must memorize!
For each heart word included in this unit, there is a teaching slide to go with it. This is helpful for you (and students) to see where the “heart part” is. Under each slide (in the speaker notes section), it will explain why the heart is there for teacher reference and there is also a sentence you may want to use with each word.
I also included some completely editable slides with the moveable symbols for you as well. This way you can use these for other heart words you want to introduce, or if you want to change the way I mapped a word.
