This page contains the link to access a digital folder in Google Drive. The folder contains digital word sort files to accompany Differentiated Spelling Program (Grades 1-3)
. No more time-consuming cutting, messy glues or lost pieces. Students, teachers and parents can always have access to the completed sorts.
The included word lists are adapted from the “Words Their Way” approach to spelling (Bear, Invernizzi, Templeton & Johnston, 2008). The “Words Their Way” assessment tool will help determine student instructional spelling levels and monitor progress. However, it is not necessary if other assessment tools gather similar information. The lists vary in the number of words they contain. They are organized by level of difficulty; starting with blends and ending with prefixes and suffixes. These different lists make it easy to differentiate for a variety of learners. The sorts could be used in literacy centers, homework, or during small group instruction. They help students to find and classify patterns within words.
*You and your students will need a Google account to access and use these files. Directions included.
The purchase of these electronic files entitles an individual teacher or parent to reproduce for use in a classroom or home. Reproduction for use in an entire school or school system or for commercial use is prohibited. Files may not be posted publicly online. Access must be set to “Private” in the share settings and shared with individual students for use.
