A photocopiable resource. This innovative word-association method will take the strain out of teaching those awkward high frequency words that cannot be completely decoded phonetically. It gives you and your class an enjoyable and highly effective way of acquiring and retaining sight recognition and spelling of these words. Research on the method has demonstrated a retention rate of over 95% over the period of the study and it is used by dozens of Leicestershire teachers to good effect. The method works by associating a simple, memorable image with a simple sentence. Children quickly assimilate the two using the range of activities provided and this becomes their key to those words when encountered in the text.
