    Here is Ginger looking for High Frequency Words in the Sunday paper!  When she finds one, she highlights it.  When she finishes the article, she counts how many words she found.  Then she tallies all of the words up according to the first letter of each word.  Sometimes, she even makes a graph using the information from the tally.  When she really feels bright, she puts all of the words into alphabetical order!  Often times she writes the words on index cards and tries to make sentences with them!  What creative ideas can you come up with the words you find?
