We use these weekly in our morning centers rotations. Students read through the words, cut them out and sort them by word family. They will then glue them under the correct word family.
Included are 9 Word Sorts:
Long A: -ake, -ame, -ate, ai, ay
Long E: e, ee, ea, -py, -ny, -dy
Long I: -ike, -ide, -ine, i, y, igh
Long O: -oke, -ose, -ote, o, oa, ow
Long U: -une, -use, -ute, -ule
These sorts are great for quickly assessing students understanding of the word families for the week. I also have my students bring these to the guided reading table and quickly read me the words they've sorted.
