SMART RESOURCE | List 1 provides beginning learners with ten high frequency words. The words are presented individually on a teddy bear chart. In the beginning stages of learning, the teddy bear and initial letter form a visual marker to assist the student to identify the word. An activity sheet Say it, Colour it, Write it allows for each word to be practised in isolation. A List 1 sheet of words and How many words can you write? activity is also included. Finally, the Learning Intention and a further five activities are provided for additional student practise to learn these words. Students can also be encouraged to find these words in their environment as well as using them in their reading and writing. The colour format is excellent for teacher modelling books and student booklets.
