Also known as: High frequency words.

These are words that appear regularly and more often than others in the stories we read. By practicing to recognize and read these words smoothly, children are better capable of reading these words in texts. Every child will have a set of words that will go home and come back to school daily. Please have your child read these words to you at least three times (once when you or your child gets home, once before bed, and once before school; or however it works best for you and your family). Your child will be asked to read, write, and spell these words at school, so please make sure these words come to school every day! With mastery, children will be able to "level up" to a longer list or a list with a different color.
