What are high frequency words?
High frequency words are words that appear very often in texts. Children will quicken their reading speed if they can easily recognise high frequency words without having to decode them. Sometimes the words can be decoded, and sometimes they can’t. So sometimes high frequency words can be tricky words AND common exception words as well! Children need to be able to spell these words correctly as well as read them.
