High Frequency Words

High Frequency Words are the most commonly used words in the English language. I, you, and the account for 10% of all words in print! We want the students to know these words instantly and accurately in order to help build their fluency and comprehension. By learning high frequency words, students don’t have to stop and sound out every word in the text. When we teach these words, we don’t sound them out. They need repetition and practice reading the word in context to help them master the word.
