Perfect for the young learner, English language learner (ELL/ESL), RTI reading intervention, phonological awareness, phonics, independent work, small group work, whole group lesson, or cooperative groups (sorting cards as a group) who are learning alphabet letter sounds.
There are over 200 picture cards within!
Get over 100 pages full of picture cards, letter cards, vowel cards, colored pages, black and white reproducible pages, activity ideas- such as how to turn a tissue box into a phonemic awareness center, unlabeled sorting mats for 2, 3, and 4 categories, pre-labeled sorting mats for vowels, and interactive letter houses.
This product contains my original ABC Sorting activity (which does not have the letter houses), plus pre-labeled sorting mats and a whole new cut-n-paste interactive letter house activity for notebooks/journals, loose worksheets, or homework.
Every picture card and sorting mat is in both full color and black-line versions. The letter houses are fully reproducible, but are in black and white only.
217 picture cards are organized by initial consonant and initial short vowel sounds; initial long vowels are on a separate page. Use the blank sorting mats or the pre-labeled mats, or your pocket chart.
