Part III. Dr. Dolch’s  220 most common words in English

(arranged for 1st  through 3rd grade students)

 From 50 -75% of all words used in school books, library books, newspapers, and magazines are in the Dolch Basic Sight Vocabulary of 220 words (preschool through Grade 3).  The Dolch word list is made up of «service words» (pronouns, adjectives, adverbs, prepositions, conjunctions, and verbs) which usually cannot be learned through the use of pictures. Many of these words are also on Dr. Fry’s list, so there is no need to duplicate the flashcards.
