A simple and extremely versatile word sort!
This word sort, focusing on the short a sound, consists of:
1) Short A Word Chunk Cards: -at, -am, -an, -ap, and -ad
*** Four cards of each family included for a center activity!
2) Short A Sort Cards for these families
*** 12 cards for each family
The word sort cards are a mixture simple CVC words and the beginning digraphs sh-, th-, and ch- to challenge excelling readers. Each set of 12 words also has a mixture of real and nonsense words to provide an additional way to sort the short o words!
In my classroom, I mix and match these cards with other short vowel families for a review and a challenge for those that need it. I also have students sort the words and then do fluency drills with them during guided reading or intervention time. THEY LOVE IT!
