List of 1200

High Frequency Words



The words in this word bank are listed in the order of their frequency of use in everyday writing. Since the is the most frequently used word in our language, its number is one in the word bank. The first 25 words are used in 33% of everyday writing, the first 100 words appear in 50% of adult and student writing, and the first 1,000 words are used in 89% of everyday writing.



CORE WORDS



The Core Words in the Rosemarie’s English Learning Program (ELP) are divided by grade levels. They are the seeds from which this spelling program grows and develops. They provide a foundation for each grade level to begin spelling exploration and are a springboard for the study of hundreds of additional words.



Grade 1 word frequencies 1-30

Grade 2 word frequencies 31-130

Grade 3 word frequencies 131-265

Grade 4 word frequencies 266-400

Grade 5 word frequencies 401-600 and beyond



"NO EXCUSES" WORDS

"No Excuses" Words are those which students are held accountable. They are expected to spell them correctly in all of their everyday writing. They are taken from the list of core words. Below are the groups of words which we hope most children will master by the end of his/her grade level. Please help your child to spell these words correctly in their everyday writing. Not all classes or all children will have the same number of priority words at any given time. Spelling is both a developmental and highly individualized skill so teachers attempt to meet the needs of their classes within the framework of the program.

Grade 1 words 1-21

Grade 2 words 1-36

Grade 3 words 1-60

Grade 4 words 1-100

Grade 5 words 1-150 and beyond
