Phrases and Short Sentences for Repeated Reading Practice

First 100 Words
These phrases contain the first 100 words from the Fry Instant Word List (1980), which represent 50 percent of all the words children encounter in elementary school reading.

These phrases may be written on sentence strips, transparencies, or on a chart for use in literacy center or small group instructional setting.
