I created this word sort as an extra addition to helping my students to really focus on the spelling variations of -aw/-au. They must read the words before simply sorting...honing in on the spelling and the sound. You can easily have your students circle or highlight the sounds, so that they are showing you their focus on the spelling pattern. I have included a nice comparison, labeling the top categories with "-aw like 'saw'" (with a picture of a hand saw), and then "-au like 'launch'" (with a picture of a rocket launching). This is simply a one page practice sheet!
