Incorporating Eyewords Multisensory High Frequency Words into Phonics Scope and Sequence Lessons


What is the difference between Heart Words, Temporary Heart Words and Flash Words?

Heart Words are high-frequency words with irregular letter-sound relationships where the irregular part of the word must be learned “by heart.” Heart Words can be segmented into individual phonemes with a heart indicating the irregular letter or letter combination. Examples include said, and where.

 

Temporary Heart Words are high frequency words that follow regular letter-sound relationships and spelling patterns but the student hasn't yet learned the phonics pattern needed to decode the heart part of these these words.

 

Flash Words are high frequency words that that follow regular letter-sound relationships and spelling patterns. These words can be decoded using common phonics knowledge. The consonant and vowel letters make the sounds that we expect them to make. Examples of Flash Words include words like did, it, can, and but.
