Instant Words K-Fourth

Instant Words 
Kindergarten ~ Fourth Grade

The Instant Words Lists are highly used words in the English language organized by level of high frequency. These lists are used as our standard for the learning of high frequency words. Teachers  provide many varied experiences in the classroom with these words, such as word walls,  pocket charts, etc. The learning processes for high frequency words will be accelerated with additional exposure to the words outside of the classroom setting. Many families will enjoy having these words at home to work into word work activities such as memory, flash card fun while on car trips, etc. When your child is ready to continue to another grade level list....journey on!

The goals of students 'owning' these lists include increasing each students' sight word automaticity, allowing students to focus on thinking and "making meaning" from a variety of texts. First grade students will work on the Kindergarten and First Grade lists, Second will want to know the Kindergarten, First and Second Grade lists, etc.

Have fun!
