This set is designed to help you reinforce your lessons about different types of syllables.
Sorting in general is a valuable activity for young children because it encourages brain development. Our brains love categorizing
And sorting by syllable type has extra benefits for kindergarten and 1st grade readers:
• develops phonological awareness
• develops phonemic awareness
• increases word sense
• improves phonetic decoding and spelling ability
• develops flexibility in word recognition
Included in this kit are:
• a detailed teacher’s guide
• 2 posters
• 2 sorting mats
• 4 worksheets, lined and unlined
• 40 word cards
• answer keys
• extra word cards for SpEd & ELL students
• 2 worksheets for early finishers
• a board game with 84 additional word cards
• open and closed syllable resources
You can differentiate this sorting activity in several ways:
• by using with a large group, small group, partners, or individuals;
• by varying the level of words on the word cards;
• by just using the sorting activity, or by adding the worksheet follow-up activity; or
• by using the word cards for SpEd & ELL students and activities for early finishers.
