The Initial Phoneme Sorts use fun, colorful pictures to provide abundant practice segmenting and sorting initial phonemes. Each of the 8 sets has 27 picture cards (9 each for 3 phonemes) and includes an example card. Sets cover consonants, digraphs, hard/soft sounds of c and g.
These phoneme segmentation manipulatives are color-coordinated with Phoneme Songs & Blending, our remarkably effective program that uses songs to teach phonemes in isolation. The phonemes are grouped the same and background colors match.
A great by-product of Phoneme Sorts is vocabulary development. Direct students to set aside the picture cards they are unsure of. Use them as a teaching opportunity. Rather than tell students what a word is, discuss it (i.e., if the picture is a koala, talk about characteristics of this bear, where it is found, etc.).

Remaining full-color phonemic awareness and reading readiness products are being liquidated at 50% off laminated pricing. The fun art is printed on cover-weight paper. The engaging graphics could also be used for vocabulary and language development. Pieces are color-coded or coded for organization.
