High Frequency Word Lists as .pdf Files


The high frequency word lists below contain the words found in children's reading books in order of the frequency in which they occur. If students were to learn just the words contained on the very first list (words 1 to 100), they will have learned half of all the words they will come across in children's reading materials! They are especially good lists for ELL and ELD students and are great to draw from for spelling development in general.

I have also developed each of the lists, 12 in all, into 100-card PowerPoint presentations with single words to a card. We use them on 25-inch TV monitors connected to our computers and they work excellently... easily readable from the back of the classrooms.
