→ 39 sorting mats
→ Nine words per sorting mat
→ Word lists of the words included
→ Blank sorting mats and cards for additional use with other CVC word patterns

→ Sample page of one of the word sorts

Easy clean-up and storage:
♥ Laminate the cards and mats
♥ One option is to put the mats in plastic sleeves
♥ Sets can be stored in a binder
♥ Cards can be stored in pockets or plastic bags.
♥ Each vowel set is color coded on the trash bin on the mat and on the words.
♥ Besides each trash bin is a different flower. This flower is located in the corner of that word family’s cards. This is an easy check to see if the cards are placed on the correct sorting mat. Plus by using the flowers, the cards can be easily sorted for frequent use.
