A years worth of 40 word sorts! ... If you teach spelling by using phonetic patterns, then these words sets will provide all that you need for a comprehensive curriculum. I've included directions as well as more than enough word sort spelling lists to get you through an entire school year.
Included you will find:
*directions on how to use word sorts
*directions on how to assess word sorts
*a poster of 7 word sort activities for students
*a graphic organizer for sorting
*40 sets of word sorts
These word sorts include these patterns and more:
*long vowels with silent e
