dramatically improve kindergarten writing skills – sight words are the key

In Nellie Edge Online Seminars teachers will discover how to dramatically improve kindergarten writing skills – sight word sentences with good handwriting and multisensory ABC phonics mastery are the key!

We call sight words “heart words,” because children learn them by heart. We simultaneously teach them using Kindergarten-Friendly Handwriting and Multisensory ABC Phonics Immersion. 

Authentic Sight Word Work

Children practice the word “love” for mastery. The “heart word” sentence, “I love you”, is our power sentence.

Teach high-frequency “heart words” and kindergarten-friendly handwriting together to build rapid recall and writing skills.

Step-by-step video tutorials and companion Teacher's Guide.

Led by renowned early literacy teacher and researcher, Nellie Edge

Hundreds of downloadable templates, posters and teaching materials

See the full list of resources.
