Here is Kemy holding her bathtub poster of high frequency words. These words, also known as, "sight words", "word wall words", or "words we know in a snap", are a very important tool for emergent readers. Automatic recognition and the ability to read them quickly, builds confidence and aids in the success of decoding the words surrounding them in a sentence.
By the end of the kindergarten year, students are expected to learn 25 high frequency words. I've added a few extra to our list and word wall. Any extra words learned will be an advantage for our readers!
The class had fun making these, partly due to a little inside joke about taking a bath.
