Science of Reading Heart Words Family Introductory Materials: Do you need a clear way to introduce parents and guardians to the Science of Reading way of teaching High-Frequency Words? Is the phrase Heart Words confusing to them? Here is a packet of resources you can use to help parents understand how to best support their student at home with high-frequency words!


What is included in the PDF?

  • One in-depth (2 page) letter to send out that details what high-frequency words are, why they are so important, regular and irregular words, how we used to teach sight words, how students learn, what orthographic mapping means, and how parents can best support at home.
  • Does that sound like too much to throw at your families? I have included a more concise (1 page) intro letter if you don’t want to send out as much detail!
  • Samples of the heart word concept using words from and said
  • How parents can help map the words at home - with clear directions and pictures
  • Practice mats to send home with 3, 4, or 5 boxes on a page (2 different versions!)
  • NEW: I have added a foldable handout, too!


I used these resources in my own classroom this year and received numerous comments from parents on how helpful and informative they were!


Please note this resource is not editable.
