Spanish High-Frequency Words: First Grade (downloadable PDF)
High-Frequency Word cards help build high-frequency word vocabulary, improving recall and recognition of commonly used words in Spanish. Teachers can use these cards on classroom word walls as well as for large and small group instruction.
- Introduce words in groups of five to seven words or fewer per week.
- Allow students to write the words as often as possible. They may practice individual words or write high-frequency word sentences.
- Allow students to practice using the words orally as well. Sentence stems can be used to facilitate the use of the high-frequency words.
- Conduct informal assessments using the high-frequency words. When a student has memorized a word, meaning he or she can read it without decoding or write it without seeing the word, check the word off and move on to the next word.
