100 High Frequency Words

I have put together a range of 100 High Frequency Word themes for you to use. I used the Rocket Theme on my sons bedroom wall, I cut all the rockets out - it only took me one evening to do it.
If you would like the aliens and planets as well, please leave a comment. These all have quite a number of pages because it is 100 words - just letting you know.

The rockets have been up on the wall for a while and we have played many games: Before bedtime we try to make sentences with the words - I usually "lose" because my sentences  never seem to make sense (I like to check if he is really listening to me),sometimes we use flash lights to shine on the words. Another one is we try to say as many words as we can under one minute. It is super fun.


I have also included a Read and Write booklet, because I found that now my son is learning new words, and is always asking me to spell words when he writes his sentences. 
Any new word that I spell for him, he now writes it down in the word book, so now that his word book has got a good couple of words in, he checks his book before asking me to spell a word - Absolute Bliss - Its no fun when his favorite topic of the week is his lizard and I have to spell Lizard every day!

Board Games are an excellent way to learn.  Children learn valuable skills like hand-eye coordination to social skills, brain-strengthening strategy to math and language learning as well as turn taking and being a good sport, they gain knowledge of basic concepts as they practise good listening, following directions and responding appropriately. Children also get to work on their fine motor skills as they manipulate and move the game board pieces.  The best part about board games – They are downright fun!

Directions for playing Rotten Apples.
With a white board marker pen, write out your sight words/letters onto the back of the apples.
Place the tree on the floor. Place all the apples on the tree writing side facing down. Give your child a basket/container for collecting their apples. Let your child pick an apple off the tree. If your child can read/say what is written on the apple – the apple goes into their basket. If they cannot read the letter on the apple, the apple goes back on the tree.

If the child picks the rotten apple – the apple with the worm in it, all of their apples must be put back onto the tree. If your child turns over the Go Again apple he/she gets to pick 2 consecutive apples.

Note: After the Worm apple and the Go Again Apple have been picked, take these cards out of the game.

This game can be used to play a number of activities: letters, numbers, emotions, first words, vocabulary, math, comprehension questions. The possibilities are endless.


I would suggest laminating these pages, then cutting them out. You can also print the tree in A4, just scale the picture to size before printing.
