Red Words

Red Words
Red words are words that the children need to learn. They can not be sounded out. By looking at, listening to and writing these words regularly, the children learn to recognise them and read them fluently without having to pause and think.
In our daily Read Write Inc sessions we read the red words for the RWInc book bands that the children are reading and then choose 4 or 5 words to practise writing to help with their spelling.  
Band 1 red words for Ditties or Sound Blending books
Band 2 red words for Red books
Band 3 red words for Green and Purple books
Band 4 red words for Pink and Orange books
Band 5 red words for Yellow books
Band 6 red words for Blue and Grey books
