This packet includes 26 alphabet picture sorts. Each sort has 10 pictures and a sorting mat. The mat is designed so that your students have room to write the words for each picture in the sort. The sorts focus on beginning sounds for each letter of the alphabet. The letter Xx, however, focuses on the ending sound. The first sort focuses on things that start with Aa or do not. The second sort sorts beginning sounds Aa & Bb. The third is Bb & Cc and so on until you reach the end of the alphabet. These activities are designed to follow a letter a day as well as a letter a week programs. Included are color images for each letter to be used in literacy centers or whole group instruction. I hope your students have as much success with sorting as my students do.
