Getting a room full of diverse learners to apply the alphabetic code to words and start reading and writing is daunting enough without also having to deal with scary “irregular” words! Do I “heart” them? Do I “map” them in Elkonin boxes? Do I just send them for memorization homework as whole words and wish the parents luck? Do I just avoid them for as long as possible and hope they somehow magically crop up in the minds of my students? Well, those are ‘trick’ approaches. How about seeing them as a “treat?” Every irregular word tells a story. Don’t believe me? Let’s take ten fine examples (harvested over years of asking teachers, “What word is hard to spell/teach/remember?”) and tell their own stories, while revealing the whole story. Leave this session with a bag of tricks to help you make every word-study session a treat.
