Product Description
Word sorts engage children in analyzing words by sorting them into categories so that the relationship between the words can be seen. This packet contains all the spelling patterns first graders need to know all year. There are 73 word sorts in all, covering letters, sounds, and content area topics. Children cut out and glue words according to the categories provided at the top of each basketball goal.
You can put them at a word work center, use as morning work, homework, or assessments. No prep needed. Just print and go!
