High Frequency Words for First Graders

High Frequency Words 

     The ability to recognize high frequency words in a quick and efficient manner supports a child in becoming a phrased and fluent reader. Here is a list of words that are commonly found in print.     The lists are ranked from highest occurrence in text to lower occurrence in text.
     I use this list with my first grade Reading Recovery® students, but it would be a great list for any emergent reader!
