The Most Used Words

on May 31, 2014

The Most Used Words is a post from http://www.homeschoolreadingspecialist.com

The top five most-used English words are: THE, OF, AND, TO, and A.

The top 100 sight words comprise 50% of all we see in print every day.

The top 220 sight words make up 65% of all we read each day! Know these words!

Know how to read and spell them.

I’m not going to reinvent the wheel. There are plenty of sight word resources on the internet.

Here’s how to find them ~

Go to your favorite search engine and search one or more of the following:

Dolch sight words

Fry sight words

Top 100 sight words

Top 220 sight words

Fry 1000 sight word lists

I’m sure you will find more ways to search! Have fun! Sight words are of great importance in building a successful reader. Be sure these words are a daily part of your child’s instruction until they are learned.

Have a great weekend! Blessings!
