This is a word sort for words that have long and short o's. There are 2 different sorts in this file. The first one is sorting words on "hot" and "cold" o mats. This one has 24 words to sort. The second is for finding the short o and long o match to get students recognizing the silent e. This one has 18 words to sort. Both have recording sheets and have a winter theme with arctic animals.

The little furry animals are so cute in this motivating game for kiddos consolidating understanding as well as those that need much more repetitions in order to understand concepts. I'm sure this game will be helpful to all my firsties! Thank you for making it a freebie!

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:
I work with ELL students and am concerned about using pictures that do not relate to meaning of the word for them. I am wondering if fun borders would be an alternative to using actual pictures of like the word "cove" with a picture of a seal. Just an idea! Otherwise I like the sorting idea of long and short vowels.
I would guess that this activity wouldn't be too helpful for ELL students because of the lack of pictures matching the word. The task for them would be different. When I am using it with my students, I'm checking to see if they can read the word. If I would have a picture of the word, I wouldn't know if they are reading the word vs. knowing the picture (if that makes sense). We use a lot of Words their Way in our school and my class is in the book that the sorts with words only now-which is why the game is the way it is. Thanks for your comment!
