This word sort is meant to be for students are learning the difference between CVC and CVCe words that follow the typical pattern ex: rat>rate
For the sort part, I have included cards for multiple options of sorting. You can sort once comparing short vowel sounds to long vowel sounds, and then by the specific vowel.
I use this sort to see if my students can see how the magic e changes the sound of the vowel.
I hope this suits you well!
