High-Frequency Word Lists


Every week since the beginning of the school year we have been practising 9-10 words of the week. These are high-frequency words students are expected to be able to recognize and read automatically.

Each week these words have been on our weekly/monthly homework sheet and on the Reading Support page of the blog, where we have recorded ourselves reading the words.

Below are the full lists of high-frequency for both grade levels. These complete lists can also be found on the Reading Support page of the blog.

Happy practising! 🙂
