Step-by-Step Guided Lesson
Step 1: Start Video
(Tips: Interact with the video by pausing, to ask questions or discuss information viewed with student.)
This video is a read along story that contains some of the HFW in this lesson.
Step 2: Teach Lesson
Today we will practice reading some words that we see a lot in books. These words do not always follow our
letter patterns.
Show the high frequency word (HFW) “do”. This word is do. We do our work. Do. What is this word?
Show the HFW “come”. This word is come. Come to school. Come. What is this word?
Show the HFW “there”. This word is there. It is over there. There. What is this word?
Show the HFW “have”. This word is have. Have a nice day. Have. What is this word?
Show the HFW “of”. This word is of. A pot of gold. Of. What is this word?
Show the HFW “some”. This word is some. Have some cake. Some. What is this word?
Continue by repeating each HFW three or four times, following no specific pattern.
Now let's read the six HFWs on this page (give the student the Fluency Practice page Step 3).
I will say a word. You find my word in the box at the top of your page, touch it and say it.
Ready? Touch the word “do”. Note responses. Read the word aloud. (Affirm or correct).
Ready? Touch the word “come”. Note responses. Read the word aloud. (Affirm or correct).
Continue reading the rest of the HFWs at the top of the page. Reread the words several times, mixing up the order.
Now we are ready to read these words in the sentences below. Model each sentence. Then have the student read
them back to you. Provide help as needed. Reread each sentence several times until the student is proficient.
Now let's see how well we know these words.
You will read the six words and the sentences to me.
Listen and note how fluently the student reads (smoothly or haltingly). Note which words the student misreads. Observe
and chart progress for the student.
