Irregular Word Activities

  • One way to accelerate learning of irregular words is to print out flash cards for all 30 words (download them here), making copies for your students to practice with at home.
  • If words are being introduced too slowly for your students, you can introduce a new irregular word every day. You should feel free to vary the pace, being careful to ensure that everyone is keeping up.
  • When you point to a word, wait before touching it and train students to respond only when you touch the word. That gives all students time to think of the answer, so that slower students don't just copy faster students.
  • For each activity, keep a record of items a student had problems with. Review this activity log before the next activity so you pay special attention to those students.
