Help your students to practice the difference between vowels and consonants while practicing their sight words. This can
be done as a whole class (overhead, Smart Board,
etc.), in pairs or as a small group.
There are game cards for each sight word, a recording sheet for their sorting, and an answer sheet that can be used by the teacher, individuals, or pairs. It has a cute background too that looks great. Laminate for durability.
You can also practice American Sign Language finger spelling during this activity/center as well. As the students sort the letters of the word, they can finger spell the letters they are writing down or the whole sight word!

I'm teaching literacy to ESL adult learners (people who never learned to read in any language in their native countries). I like these materials because the graphics are attractive, yet not juvenile. Like many teachers, I don't have access to color copies, but the graphics look very good when copied in black and white. I copied all the Dolch words onto cardstock, and they're very useful. The sorting graphic organizer should be larger, however. The students in my class -- and children who are learning to read -- need more space to write.
