★★★★★ This is exactly what I asked Alligator Apps to develop for my classroom. Thank you so much!
The Fry 1000 Instant Words are a list of the most common 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.
Why Fry Words from Alligator Apps? We believe that educational apps should be ridiculously fun, immensely educational, and affordable for all.
Ideal for Kids 1 - 4 Years Old

So perfect for emerging and struggling readers!
My daughter has lagged a bit behind on her reading mainly because of sight words. She was evaluated through Scottish Rite for dyslexia. They recommended she practice the Fry word list everyday to help with word fluency. I was so happy to find this app. We use it with a timer to help her with her word fluency. Perfect, simple, easy to use. Thanks for creating this!
great for dyslexic adults, too!
My adult son had his reading level go from second grade level to sixth when I worked with him daily, but it returned to second when he moved out on his own. If he will allow himself to learn the Fry's Lists, he is less apt to be teased and have people ridicule him. He has even had prospective girlfriends say they did not want to text or chat anymore because of his terrible spelling!
This app has almost everything I look for in an app for use in my classroom - customizable, easy to use, engaging for my students. The only other thing I wish it had was a record keeping component where I could enter several students and then email a report to myself for data tracking. But even without that component, in my opinion, it is a 5-star app.
