High-Frequency Word Books
Prepare students for reading success with three sets of high-frequency word books, which includes the most commonly used sight words in printed text. Each set targets high-frequency words, including sight words of gradually decreasing frequency. High-Frequency Word Books introduce these common words in an easy-to-read format with non-high-frequency words shown with a rebus. Repeated use will lead to greater fluency, reading rate, and reader confidence.
Why Use High-Frequency Word Books
Since high-frequency words, or sight words, are essential to fluent reading, and since many are not decodable in English, repeated exposure and memorization are crucial. High-Frequency Word Books introduce the most common and most essential words in the early sets and reinforce those words in subsequent sets.

How to Use High-Frequency Word Books
Memorization comes most easily through repetition. Students need to read and write high-frequency words as often as possible.
Provide students with their own copies of the printable High-Frequency Word Books to read repeatedly. Have students circle, underline, or write the sight words on the book pages.
Supporting bingo cards, flashcards, and the High-Frequency Word Strategy Bank provide different ways to integrate high-frequency words in your reading instruction.
