DEER VALLEY UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT HIGH FREQUENCY/IRREGULARLY SPELLED WORD LISTS
The Deer Valley Unified School District High Frequency/Irregularly Spelled Word Lists were developed to align with the 2016 Arizona English Language Arts Standards. The words on the new K-3 lists include sight words from our Into Reading curriulum along with words from the Fry Word Lists - the most commonly used words in reading and writing.
The mastery goal for each grade level is 85% by end of the year. If a student has mastered the required grade level words with 100% mastery, it is Deer Valley Unified’s expectation that the student be taught and assessed on the next word list.
