These are the most common words used in reading and writing starting at Grade 1 and up levels that I used in my classroom. I have organized the words in columns below. Teachers or parents please make sure your students know most or even better all the words before teaching the next set of sight words. The goal is to have your students/child recognize these high frequency words automatically for the purpose of fluency. Tips: Teach only a few at a time to keep success rate high. Spell words out and use them in sentences if possible to extend understanding. I used them for my word wall words and taught 5 per week. Spelling tests and making them write them in sentences is beneficial as well. Using them in games and putting them on cue cards/flash cards can help too.
