Prepare students for reading success with three sets of high-frequency word books, which
includes the most commonly used sight words in printed text. Each set targets
high-frequency words, including sight words of gradually decreasing frequency. High-Frequency Word Books introduce
these common words in an easy-to-read format with non-high-frequency words shown with a
rebus. Repeated use will lead to greater fluency, reading rate, and reader confidence.
Since high-frequency words, or sight words, are essential to fluent reading, and since
many are not decodable in English, repeated exposure and memorization are crucial.
High-Frequency Word Books introduce the most common and most essential words in the early sets
and reinforce those words in subsequent sets.
High-Frequency Word Books introduce the most common words in the first sets and
support those words in the following sets. The following PDFs provide lists of words
for each set and the order in which they are introduced and reviewed:
To effectively memorize high-frequency words, students must read and write them
You can customize students' Reading Room settings to include access to High-Frequency
Words books through your Kids A-Z Classroom Roster. Encourage
students to repeatedly read the books and use the eBook tools to circle, highlight, or
stamp the sight words. They can even record themselves reading aloud and send the
recordings to your Kids A-Z In Basket for review.
You can also give students printed copies of the books to read on their own and urge
them to write, underline, or circle the sight words on the page. Use the supporting
bingo cards, flashcards, and the High-Frequency Word Strategy Bank to further
integrate high-frequency words in your reading instruction.
Assess your students' sight word knowledge by using the High Frequency Words
Assessments in either electronic or print form.
