These word sorts can be used in 2 ways! You can have the kids sort by the digraph sounds or by number of syllables.
These cards are easy to make, too! You can run the cards front and back or cut them and mount on cards then laminate. They are also rectangular which makes them even easier to cut out! No curvy pieces!
Word sorts are highly effective in teaching literacy to young students by helping them grasp the meanings and relationships of words. Students use cards with printed words on them and sort them into groups.
Sorting pictures gives students a stronger oral language base than looking at the sounds in isolation on a worksheet. They deal with words at a visual level, so they can analyze the speech sounds that go with the pictures. They have a phonological understanding they don't get when just looking at written words and letter combinations.
So, get your kids reading better than ever.
