According to Dr. Timothy Rasinski, Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½the words in these phrases come from Dr. Edward FryÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s Instant Word List (High Frequency Words). According to Fry, the first 300 words in the list represent about 67% of all the words students encounter in their reading.Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½
These cards use the second group of 100 Fry words. I did not create the phrases. I simply turned them into a classroom tool. You will notice a number on each card. This is to help you keep sets organized within your classroom.
I use these as an alternative to sight word cards in my classroom. I also use them as a whole group class game called Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½BANG!Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½
I've included materials for tracking student progress and additional instructions for another phrase practice game.
