PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This Christmas- themed word sort product features words with short, long, and irregular vowel sound spelling patterns. The activities will give your students practice with:
- phonemic awareness (the ability to hear and manipulate individual sounds in words; this manipulation may include segmenting sounds (taking a word apart) or blending (putting individual sounds together). Phonemic awareness refers to working with sounds only-no letter sound/symbol association involved. In these activities, students segment words into individual sounds to hear the vowel sound.
- phonics (the connection between graphemes (written letters) and sounds)
 - orthographic patterns/common long vowel sound spelling patterns - The English language includes many letter combinations that make the same sound. In these activities, students sort words with the following spelling patterns :
• long e (ē) with spelling patterns “ee”, “ea”, & (C-consonant)e
• long o (ō) with spelling patterns “oa”, “ow”, & “o (C-consonant)e”
• long a (ā) with spelling patterns “ay”, “ai”, & other less common patterns
• Long u (ū) with a variety of spelling patterns
Four activities are included. In three of the activities, students sort the words by cutting and gluing, and in one activity, students follow a color code to cut & glue. In each activity students also write the words after sorting. Students are challenged to listen carefully, because each activity includes words that have neither indicated vowel sound &/or an irregular spelling of the vowel sound.
Please take a look at the preview to see samples of the activities to determine if the activities included in this product are a good instructional fit for your students. Thank you for your interest!
