Research suggests that when newly encountered words are not sounded out, they are poorly remembered. This
is important when we approach the teaching of HFW. Although some irregular words cannot be
decoded phonetically, the vast majority of HFW are either fully or partially decodable.

Heart Words are HFWs that contain an irregular concept which cannot be decoded or a complex phonic
concept not yet learned. The difficult part of these words must be learned by heart.

  • This program focuses on the full set of Stage 1, 2 and 3 heart words.
  • It outlines a multi-day scripted process for teaching the reading and spelling of heart HFWs.
  • The program includes charts, games and scripted instruction flash cards.
