Fry Sight Words

  • One of the skills we focus on in reading is the ability to read sight words. Readers need to just know some words.  Some of these words can't be figured out using the rules and others are used so often that it makes reading easier to know them quickly. The Fry lists are the most common words readers need to know. There is a list of the words attached to practice with students. Please note that there are many words and working on 25 or 100 words at a time helps to keep from being overwhelmed.
