I created this to use during my small group instruction on vowel digraphs ee and ea. Word sorts make great interventions that can be used in Title 1 or RtI programs. Make 5 or 6 copies on card stock and laminate for multiple use.
The activities begin with a word sort for long e vowel patterns. This is a great hands-on way to teach students to read and write words. Once the words are cut and sorted, students read the list of words. I always have them underline the pattern in each word as they sort them. They can be stored in an envelope or baggy and used several days. Students love to do a speed sort on the second or third day.
Also included is my new favorite, Clip-it cards. I use the mini clothes pins and have students clip the correct vowel digraph. This can be self checking by writing the answer on the back of the cut out cards.
Two word ladders, one for each long e vowel digraph, are in the activity pack that have clues to help students build words. You could use magnetic letters or letter tiles instead of the handouts. These are fun to use after a few days of instruction on the long e patterns.
3 Bingo cards have a mix of these words to provide fun practice with these patterns. Clues are included in the Answer Key, or you can simply draw words from a bag.
Finally, because each phonics lesson should end with reading connected text, I made up a silly story with target words for students to identify and underline with a dry erase marker. My students read the target words and then read the short story. On the days following they can read a clean copy of the text for fluency.
