Fry 1000 Instant Words Read Aloud Picture Books Elementary Students blue bullet point The Fry 1000 Instant Words are a list of the most common words used for teaching reading, writing, and spelling.

blue bullet point These high frequency words should be recognized instantly by readers.

blue bullet point Dr. Edward B. Fry's Instant Words (which are often referred to as the "Fry Words") are the most common words used in English ranked in order of frequency.

blue bullet point In 1996, Dr. Fry expanded on Dolch's sight word lists and research and published a book titled "Fry 1000 Instant Words." In his research, Dr. Fry found the following results:

  • 25 words make up approximately 1/3 of all items published.
  • 100 words comprise approximately 1/2 of all of the words found in publications.
  • 300 words make up approximately 65% of all written material.

Fry 1000 Instant Words Teacher Reading Picture Book blue bullet point Over half of every newspaper article, textbook, children's story, and novel is composed of these 300 words. It is difficult to write a sentence without using several of the first 300 words in the Fry 1000 Instant Words List. Consequently, students need to be able to read the first 300 Instant Words without a moment's hesitation.

Below you will find lists
of Fry's first 300 sight words.

blue bullet point Do not bother copying these 3 lists. You will be able to download free copies of these lists, plus 7 additional lists that are not shown (words 301 - 1000), using the free download links that are found later on this page.

blue bullet point In addition to these 10 free lists of Fry's sight words, I have created 1,000 color coded flashcards for all of the Fry 1000 Instant Words.

Fry 1000 Instant Words Teacher and Elementary Students In Library blue bullet point The Fry 1000 Instant Words have been arranged in the order of frequency in which they occur in printed material.

blue bullet point A list of 100 Fry Picture Nouns were developed to supplement the Fry 1000 Instant Words.

blue bullet point Later on this page, you will also find a download link for a free set of Fry's Picture Nouns Flashcards and word lists.

blue bullet point After Fry developed his word lists, he worked to inspire young children to memorize these sight words to jump-start the reading process. The Fry 1000 Instant Words and lists are widely used today and highly respected by both teachers and parents.

blue bullet point Many of the Fry 1000 Instant Words are difficult to portray with pictures or hard to sound out through phonics methods. Therefore, these words must be learned as sight words and they must be quickly recognized in order to achieve reading fluency.

Learning Fry's Instant Sight Words Elementary Boy Student blue bullet point Once children have learned and memorized these basic sight words, they read more fluently and with greater comprehension. It is recommended that:

  • The First 100 words should be mastered by Grade 1.
  • The Second 100 Words should be mastered by Grade 2.
  • The Third 100 Words should be mastered by Grade 3.
  • The remaining lists (words 301 - 1000) should be mastered in Grades 4 - 5.

blue bullet point I have divided this list into ten groups of one-hundred words each. Below you will find free download links for these 10 sets of free Fry Flashcards and word lists.

blue bullet point I hope that you have found these free Fry 1000 Instant Words teaching resources useful in helping your students to learn to read these high frequency sight words.

blue bullet point I designed these flashcards for some of my own students who were not native English speakers that were experiencing difficulty in reading high frequency words with fluency.

Thumb Tacks

blue bullet point I received the following letter from a teacher who found that these free Fry flashcards helped a middle school student who was struggling with reading.

Learning to Read Fry Instant Sight Words Free Flashcards for Teachers and Students Name: Monica
Subject/Grade: Instructional Coach
Middle School Level
From: Colorado, United States

Comment: Thank you so much for your website, and for providing free teaching resources (when so many sites are asking for $).

You saved the day for a young bilingual 7th grader who is struggling to read. He looked at me and said, "If people would have just let me practice at my speed, I could get better at this", which broke my heart. His teachers have been looking for answers, but their prescriptive programs weren't working. When we handed our young man the Fry 1000 instant words on flashcards (THANKS! to your website), and he realized he would be able to read 65%+ of his textbooks once he had them mastered, his motivation was electric.

Again, I can't thank you enough for having the flashcards ready to use and download. If I (we) had needed to create them, it could have been several days or weeks before he had them in his hands. I am an instructional coach at several schools and have access to hundreds of teacher email accounts. As soon as I finish this note, they'll all be getting an email from me with your link.

Thank you again for your marvelous website
and caring about teachers and kids.
Monica

Heidi, I just had to write and let you know that your website has helped me create the most awesome author study of Roald Dahl's books. My students loved completing the big animal shaped projects you designed for The Enormous Crocodile, Esio Trot, and The Giraffe, and the Pelly and Me. For the final project, they had so much fun writing and drawing about the characters from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory using your Willy Wonka Factory project. Thanks for sharing your scrumdiddlyumptious ideas !
