Our Second Grade Super Stars'  High Frequency Class
The Fry list of 600 words are the most frequently used words for reading and writing.

The words are listed in rank order.

Here is a list of the First 100 High Frequency Words a child needs to know for reading, writing, and

spelling fluency. If a child knows these 100 words, he/she knows about 50% of all words in any book.

Practice the words in Groups 1, 2, 3, and 4 with your child. If they recognize all of those words easily,

move on to the next group. We would like all second graders to know the first 100 words by the end

of October. If your child knows the first 100 words, practice the words in the second 100, and so on.
