What does the research say?
The first 100 high frequency words make up approximately one third of all written material. Learning to instantly recall these words is so important. Instant recognition of these words leads to much more fluent reading and a far better ability to understand a given text (Walters, 2018; Fry, Kress, & Fountoukidis, 2000).
Reading by memorising words is something most children do when they’re first learning to read. It’s also something they need to do to be good readers. It’s similar to how actors master their parts. They do it by repeatedly practising their lines, until they know them by heart (Robin Margent, Literacy and Dyslexia Specialist).
