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 over 10 fun and engaging games to keep kids engaged and wanting to learn more.

We have made this app available based on the request from many schools and teachers so that you can get instant access to all content and purchase this app at a discount via Apple's volume purchasing program.

Lots of great games to practice sight words

My son (1st grade) enjoys the variety of games. I like the flexibility to customize them to suit his level of learning. Very helpful the way the words are broken into 10 word sets.
