Tricky Words

Below is a list of “tricky words” that we will learn this year. These words are not decodable which means they cannot be sounded out using the coding and rules that students have learned. These words will need to be memorized. You will need to make flash cards and have your child practice until they know the words by sight. This is important in helping them to become fluent readers.
