Who is Dr. Edward B. Fry?
In 1996, Dr. Fry expanded on the Dolch sight word lists and research and published a book titled Fry 1000 Instant Words. His research found that a mere 25 words make up approximately 1/3 of all items published. He discovered that 100 words comprise approximately 1/2 of all publications written, and 300 words make up 65% of all written material.
Fry developed his list based on the facts and he worked to inspire young children to memorize these sightwords to jump-start the reading process. Frys sight words lists are widely used today and highly respected by both teachers and parents.

    Total garbage

    I thought this app was like a work book for little kids but it reads them the answer so if you use it,turn the volume off if you want your kids to actually learn something.

    Very helpful!

    The combination of visual and audio was well received! The app also opened discussion on the meaning and everyday usage of the words shown/ spoken, which enhanced the whole learning experience.

    App

    The volume is uneven as the flash cards are read. Some application for 2nd langauage learners. No pictures with the words, so not good for pre-schoolers.

    Highly Recommended

    My grandaughter was more receptive of the Sight words on the Nook then using the Flash Cards and she could sit and say them as I did other things. Great idea.

    Nice pictures, grade levels listed

    I like apps with a certain style of illustration and that's why I went with this one. It is well organized. The words appear on a chalk board in somewhat small print for a young child. Nice voice over.
