Have your students practice sorting words with the short a and long a sound with this great center!
Laminate and cut out the 12 words. Students read them, and place them on their sorting mat. Short a words go inside the red apple and long a words go inside the brown acorn. Having the words and the pictures on the mat is a helpful tool to those students who are struggling.
Once the words are sorted, students complete the recording sheet by writing down the 6 long and 6 short a words.
There is also a follow up activity perfect for homework or classwork. Students sort the long a and short a words by cutting them out and gluing them into the apple or acorn.
This file includes:
-1 sorting mat
-12 word cards
-1 recording sheet
-1 follow up activity
