Fry’s 1,000 words are widely recognized as the most common words found in printed materials. These words are ranked according to how often they appear in print. Therefore, they are not necessarily in order of increasing difficulty.
According to Fry's research, completed in 1996:
• The first 25 words make up about 1/3 of all items published.
• The first 100 words make up about 1/2 of all the words found in publications.
• The first 300 words make up about 2/3 of all written materials.
In working with the Fry Words, I found that I wanted sequentially numbered lists of words. I also wanted a “clean” looking list presented in a font designed for primary students.
I just finished typing these and thought other teachers might find them handy too. So ~ here they are.
I hope you find these word lists useful and that your year is off to a super start!
