Fry Sight Word List

Fry Sight Word List

Looking for Sight Words

Sight words are the most common words used repeatedly in every type of reading material. Many of these words do not follow the phonics rules and need to be memorized in order to maintain fluency and comprehension when reading. The two most common sight word lists are the Dolch sight word list (220 words) and the Fry sight word list (1000 words). The Fry Sight Word list can be found below and is also incorporated into each of the 32 reading blocks by matching the phonics component of the block and the sight word.

 

Sight Word Cards

Sight Word Cards

The Fry sight word list can be made into individual flash cards by writing each sight word on an index card. You can have 5 to 20 sight word flash cards at a time depending on the age and ability of the reader.  When one word is “retired” or mastered, a new word can take its place. Mastered words can be reviewed periodically. This list of words should be practiced throughout the reading program until all the words are mastered. Multi-sensory methods and activities can be used to help a reader master these words.

You can find recommendations for effective products to use when teaching sight words here.
