These word sorts will supplement your first-grade spelling and phonics instruction for your entire year including short vowels, long vowels, blends, digraphs, etc.
I have my students color over the back of the page with one color crayon, and then cut them out so that they know which cards are theirs in case they fall on the floor. Then they sort them in various ways and take them home in a baggie to use for homework. These especially are helpful for putting their spelling words in ABC order or they could grab them to use for word work activities. Most lists have 2 pages to differentiate for the students who need more challenging words.
