Looking for a great way to introduce technology while building literacy skills with your students? These fully editable emergent spelling activities are perfect for introducing mouse skills, letter placement on keyboard, and the delete button! They build students confidence while also assessing students acquisition of beginning phonemic and phonetic skills.
Included in this pack are 38 sort activities - each file is saved as both a pdf and a jpeg file individually. Students can open the file without altering the images. They are able to type directly onto the pdfs or write on the jpegs to complete the activities . I have student’s print these out and use these as spell checks to free up my time.
Sort spell checks for 1-16 have no typing – these are meant to build students ability to point and click with a mouse.
Sorts 1-3 these are concept sorts (students check the box to show which category the objects fit into)
Sorts 4-11 are letter recognition (students check the boxes to show the matching uppercase and lowercase letters.
Sorts 12-16 are hearing rhymes (students check all the boxes for the pictures that rhyme – this is meant to be listening for sounds to prepare students for sounds – be aware some lines all 3 pictures rhyme!)
The remaining sorts ask students to use their letter recognition to begin typing on the editable form. As students are still learning the keyboard – it is NOT expected that they type the whole word – only 1 or 2 letters.
Sorts 17-25 type the beginning letter to match the sound
Sort 26-28 type the ending letter to match the sound
Sorts 29-34 type 2 letters to show the word family
Sorts 35-38 type the vowel to match the short vowel sounds
