Tricky words cannot be sounded out easily.
Early readers may find tricky words difficult to read as they have not yet learned some of the graphemes in those words: the word ‘want’ has the ‘o’ sound instead of ‘a,’ which is how it is spelt. This means that children find it difficult to read out the word, as the sounds don’t accompany the letters. They are sometimes known as irregular words, common exception words, or sight words.
How to support your child to read tricky words:
Friday's Reading Challenge
Download a phonics worksheet & a reading worksheet.
Encourage & support your child through reading the phonics worksheet, use the 'help my child with reading' document to support questions when reading with your child.
Have a 5 minute break and then read the reading worksheet to your child, discuss what you are reading so that they can answers the questions as independently as possible.
Developing comprehension skills is important and in line with National Curriculum Statements for Reading.
