Edward B. Fry, Ph.D. is well-know for his book published in 1996 titled 1,000 Instant Words: The most common words for teaching reading, writing and spelling. Dr. Fry Instant Word List (Fry's Instant Words) also referred to as Fry Words are the most common words in English ranked in order of frequency. The first 25 Fry Words make up about a third of all printed material. The first 100 Fry Words make up about half of all written material. (Fry & Kress, 2006, p.51)

In his book, How to Teach Reading for Teachers, Parents, and Tutors, Dr. Edward B. Fry provided a list of the first 300 "Instant Words" and provides suggestions for sight words games and sight words activities to help children gain mastery over the basic vocabulary list. These 300 words make up approximately two-thirds of all written material; and an average student learns about 100 of these common sight words each year in first, second and third grade.
