This autumn-themed word work packet is sure to keep your emergent readers interested and engaged as they sort CVC and CCVC or CVCC (a variety of 2 consonant blends in a 1 syllable short vowel word) real and nonsense words. There are 10 activities, each with a short story describing a "mix up" dilemma in which the students can "help out" by sorting words. Each of the ten word sorts comes with the following components:
-a page with the short story and the cut outs with word/non-word labels(can be used as independent work "as is", or mounted on cardstock, laminated, and set up in a center)
-a sorting page with three columns-2 for sorting and a third for writing a list of the "real" words-to be used "as is" if you are using it as independent work
-a two section work mat labeled "real" and "nonsense" to be laminated and used in a literacy center
-a recording sheet with 3 pages (ten total columns) clearly labeled for the student to record all of the "real" words that s/he discovered during the sort
I had a lot of fun designing each autumn scenario/ activity in this packet-please view the preview for several examples of the word sort stories included.
Thank you for your interest in my word sort. If you purchase this product, please leave feedback and get credit for future TpT purchases. I truly value input from my colleagues as I continue to create instructional materials for your classroom.
