Differentiate instruction with these word & picture sorts! Perfect for small group instruction and literature stations/centers! Hands-on games (Connect 4, and Roll and Spell), graphic organizers for written sort and add to sort, and homework cards are a wonderful addition to mastering what you'll teach!
This Spelling Features Packet has all you need to start out the school year! It's comparable to Word Study Letter Name A, B, C, D, E. Memorization is not taught here; it's all about similarities and differences among words. All of these words are level appropriate. If a student is learning short vowels, there won't be an blends in that sort- beginning or end. There is a clear focus during each week's set of words! This way of thinking will help students during independent reading and writing when they see a known part you've taught them! This packet has all the directions you need to get started on your own.

-how to use & teach spelling features,
-beginning letter (11 weeks),
-beginning letter blend (13 weeks),
