Did you know the first 100 Fry words make up over 50% of any general text? They just keep popping up all the time in our writing and reading… that’s why we call them POPCORN words!


I've created an awesome year's worth of popcorn words that contain 93 of the most common words your Kindergarteners will encounter.


Other awesome teachers are saying:

"This product is probably one of my favorites that I have purchased on TPT. It makes planning and preparation so easy."

"My kinders are learning their sight words quickly! I love the fun, different ways that this pack has to teach them. Awesome!"

"This has everything I needed!! Thank you!!"

"This will make my life so much easier!"

"Great way to motivate kids to learn their popcorn words!"


Words are arranged in order... beginning with the most frequently occurring words first (including 78 of the first 100 Fry words and well over half of the beginning Dolch words). They come organized month by month so you can introduce 2-3 new words per week/10-11 new words per month.

I wanted to give people a really awesome sneak peek of what's included... so here is the complete 1st month (out of 9 total)! Feel free to use these in your classroom or take a good look and then if you like them, grab the complete package to keep the fun and learning coming for the entire school year (and make your life a whole lot easier and organized!)! Find it HERE!

Words included are:
month 1: I, am, a, at, an, go, to the, this, is my
month 2: see, me, can, we, up, look, and, like, will, you
month 3: do, it , how, has, had, in, on, big, be, his
month 4: run, as, would, are, here, come, have, one, happy, new
month 5: he, she, said, with, him, her, some, them, for, all, so
month 6: little, not, love, from, they, went, of, into, was, what
month 7: there, where, what, that, way, fun, play, time, word, but
month 8: then, put, make, out, over, more, use, other, if, were, about
month 9: two, by, many, yes, or, no, their, each, very, which

I hope this resource gives your Kindergarteners the powerful PUNCH they need to get excited about storing these frequently occurring words into their memories! If they can master these words, it’s sure to give them a huge advantage in their reading and writing!

And for YOU, teachers, one of my main goals is to make things as simple and hassle-free as possible! I hope this packet gives you a lot of what you would be looking for to go along with your popcorn word routine all in one, convenient, cohesive package!

For example, you’ll find three different versions of the complete list of popcorn words… these might be great for sharing with parents at open house or conferences, for your own reference, for putting in kid’s binders, etc. Choose the style you like best!

You’ll find TONS of great hands-on activities to give your students the practice they need to help learn their popcorn words!

Here's what is included:

* all of the words for this month to put up on your word wall (in 2 different sizes so you can choose the one that fits your space!)
(ALSO… if you like an awesome, chalkboard style for your words- bright, colorful text that POPS off a black chalkboard background, good news- you can buy it on it's own OR if you buy the co,plate year's worth of popcorn words, you'll get it for FREE! CHECK IT OUT! :))
* a bracelet for each week with the words of the week on it
* a trace, write, mix & fix, glue and color page to go along with each word (all of that on one page per word)
* a word search for the month’s words
* a word detective coloring sheet
* a roll-a-word dice game
* a really fun little “word wallet” complete with “dollars” for each popcorn word

* several assessment options…
* one you can send home to keep parents in the loop about their child’s progress…
* and 2 different styles of helpful tracking sheets for you so you’re able to easily view & use student data to drive your teaching.

BTW, as an added bonus- I'm including my collection of 16 classic word games for FREE when you buy the complete year's package! If you’re looking for more engaging, zero-minimal prep games and activities perfect to do with popcorn words, you can find 16 classics here 16 classic word games!!
