Tricky words are exactly that – tricky. Children have been taught through phonics to sound out words and now they have come across a set of words where normal rules don’t apply.
There aren’t many super fun and creative ways to teach tricky words but there are still plenty of ways to liven up tricky words. These activities are ones I have done before as a SET so are more suited to this setting or to station teaching, but may be transferrable. Exercise your own caution and adapt to suit the needs of the children you are teaching.
With 18 activities and a list of all 72 tricky words, this resource is your one stop shop for tricky word teaching!
