Font sorts are great for your students who come into kindergarten with little knowledge of letter identification. Students should just sort two or three letters to start off with. Stay away from some of the fancier fonts for the beginning. Once students have gained some proficiency, they can handle a few more letters at a time.
Students can sort upper case letters or lower case letters. They can even sort upper from lower case with a single letter. Font sorts are also a great way for students who confuse B and D, or P and Q, or L and I.
Common Core State Standards:
