Fry Words Games includes 100 lists of the top 1000 Fry Words used for teaching reading, writing, and spelling.

These high frequency words should be recognized instantly by readers.

Dr. Edward B. Fry's Instant Words (which are often referred to as the "Fry Words") are the most common words used in English ranked in order of frequency.

In 1996, Dr. Fry expanded on Dolch's sight word lists and research and published a book titled "Fry 1000 Instant Words." In his research, Dr. Fry found the following results:

25 words make up approximately 1/3 of all items published.
100 words comprise approximately 1/2 of all of the words found in publications.
300 words make up approximately 65% of all written material.

To make learning the Fry Words fun, simple, and easy, we have broken all 1,000 Fry words into unique sets of 10 words each and created 12 fun and engaging games to keep kids engaged and wanting to learn more.

Font problems

Great app that I use in an elementary Resource Room for students needing sight word practice. My only complaint is that the font makes certain words, like “first”, make the “f” and “i” run together and look like a weird “h”. Not the sort of thing struggling reader need. I’d give it a 5 star rating if that was fixed.

Short quick lessons

My daughter was a reluctant reader. She struggled and hated reading. I love this app for teaching these words to kids. The lessons are short and simple. We do them often. It's easy to do when we are on the go. Like standing in line at the store, or in the car, or anywhere. I had her do a quick lesson 3 times in a row. It's just 5 min spent here and there but because it's so repetitive before long she knew all the words like a pro!

Absolutely superb!

Through our local literacy center, I’m working with an elderly gentleman who doesn’t get phonics, but is able to acquire vocabulary by learning to recognize words. Unfortunately, his memory is very bad, so this app has been an immense help because of the multifaceted approach it offers to each set of 10 words. It offers the possibility of a lot of repetition without ever becoming boring. It’s been a godsend!
