Who is Dr. Edward B. Fry?

In 1996, Dr. Fry expanded on Dolch’s 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. Fry’s sight words lists are widely used today and highly respected by both teachers and parents.

    The sight words on the cards are EXTREMELY small. They need to be made bigger for small children.

    Great idea and works well except for some of the words needing to be much louder / all words should be at the volume level.

    I dont really see the point since they read the words aloud.

    Learn with sound on. Test with sound off.

    Force close on asus transformer prime (ICS) when home icon is tapped. Otherwise, good app. Would be better if audio could be disabled during play instead of having to back track to settings option on home screen.

    Love this app! Love that the words are spoken as this engages my 2 year old to repeat the words and the animation is adorable!
